Ishmael Reed has made Oakland, California, his home of the past 30 years. Designed as walking tours of Oakland, his essays tell of the history, architecture, and politics of this popular city on San Francisco Bay. Richard Allen reads each essay in a comfortable voice, describing all in a warm tone. As the walking tours progress, the listener becomes familiar with the people and events of this interesting city, which always sounds fresh and new in each successive essay. M.B.K.
