GROWN-UP ANGER The Connected Mysteries of Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie, and the Calumet Massacre of 1913

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Dennis Boutsikaris

Biography & Memoir • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

If excellence in audiobook narration means doing everything right while seeming to do little or nothing, Dennis Boutsikaris sets a standard here. In a feat of storytelling, Wolff has combined his own personal history growing up in Northern Michigan with the life stories of Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie, and the intertwined histories of American folk music and radical politics. A notorious event in the labor movement, the Calumet Massacre, is a featured connection. Boutsikaris's reading is expressive but restrained, calculatingly understated in the manner of the music and performers he's describing. No accents or half-sung lyrics mar a performance that matches the text in every nuance yet never draws attention to itself. Here's a narrative that engages the heart and mind for a deeply satisfying listening experience. D.A.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2017]
