GREAT AMERICAN BESTSELLERS The Books That Shaped America

by | Read by Peter Conn

History • 12 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2009

Award-winning Professor Conn is an excellent speaker with an energetic voice and command of his subject material. During 24 lectures Conn gives the listener a focused look at key bestselling works of literature and their places within the fabric of American cultural history. Conn conveys a dry sense of humor and irony as he explores 22 representative bestsellers at various stages of American history, from the first book published in the English-speaking New World to those of the blockbuster authors who dominate the 21st-century publishing industry. Hearing about these representative works gives one a deeper understanding of how American literature can both mirror the events of its time and impact them.
