Contemporary Culture • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1972

Dennis Smith was ahead of his time, writing about the life of a group of hardworking fire- fighters before reality TV became a national pastime. His words and experiences are paired well with this reading by native New Yorker Adam Henderson. Henderson renders the struggles, camaraderie, and devotion of these hard-talking, working-class men as they fight fires in one of the worst neighborhoods in New York City in the 1970s. Henderson's performance transports listeners to the scene of each fire. A perfect choice of reader. H.L.S. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB / MAR 03]
