The Storm Of London by Fernande Blaze de Bury (1856 - 1931).

This project is complete and all audio files can be found in the catalogue: https://librivox.org/the-storm-of-london-by-fernande-blaze-de-bury/
Our clothes tell our story. They reflect our rank, have to suit a perfect event, and much more. But what happens when they disappear? Sounds frightening, so thought the Earl of Somerville on the first day before sinking into this new reality which was in many respects better for him than the old reality. Through Lord Somerville, a man who only looks for someone to see himself behind his rank and lost in the game of the ton, we learn to see the many layers of the society in which he lives. Partially sad, partially funny, and full of universal truth, this book is sure to move you. (Summary by Stav Nisser)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/63939
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

Magic Window is in place!

Reading the summary, I couldn't understand a phrase, maybe it's a misspelling? It's the last word in this phrase "lost in the game of the ???"

Hi how are you? Welcome to one of the most thought provoking books I read here.
I ment to write: "tun", an expression for London's high society. But perhaps I spelled it wrong. This may well be.

It is tun in the summary, I just didn't know the word that's why it didn't make sense to me. I googled the word now with regard to London's high society and it returns as "ton", so maybe that's it. You know so many things, Stav!
Thank you for the welcome! This does sound like an intriguing book!

Hi Stav,

I was trolling around looking for something to work on and I came across this work of yours. If you are still looking for a DPL I would love to do this. It sounds intriguing.

Thanks for the consideration.
