FRACTURE Life and Culture in the West, 1918-1938

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Ralph Lister

History • 17 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Blom's book about life in Europe and America between the Wars should be required reading for every student in both parts of the world. This profound and beautifully organized history book is delivered by Ralph Lister, whose British accent makes it truly irresistible. Lister deftly glides from seemingly unrelated topics, such as the rise of American jazz in the 1920s to unrest in Berlin and Paris a few years later, and quickly delivers the fascinating historical connections. His skill at describing how discoveries and trends, both good and bad, in one part of the world trigger very different reactions elsewhere is mesmerizing. It's like listening to the world's greatest history teacher. This is one audiobook listeners will want to hear many times. M.S.
