SHOW ME A HERO A Tale of Murder, Suicide, Race, and Redemption

by | Read by Jay Snyder, Cheryl Smith

Contemporary Culture • 12.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Following the recent Golden Globe-winning HBO miniseries of the same name, journalist Lisa Belkin's fascinating investigation into the struggle to integrate public housing in Yonkers, New York, has a welcome opportunity to reach a new audience. Jay Snyder's narration recedes so that the story is at the forefront, letting listeners into the microcosm of Yonkers to follow the fortunes of local politicians and residents. Cheryl Smith reads the prologue and epilogue, and she's an able stand-in for the author in these more personal sections that bring the book into the present with updates on the lives of the people profiled and an insider's view of the filming of the miniseries.
