BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY BURN AGAIN Democracy, Rebellion, and Revolution

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Ron Butler

Contemporary Culture • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Narrator Ron Butler puts forth a bronze-star-worthy effort in the face of this relentless barrage of facts and anecdotes describing the run-up to the 2016 presidential election. Fountain's disturbing yet salient distillation of that time, in the form of essays written more or less contemporary with the events, deserves an audience--but in print it could be a depressing read and easily set aside. Enter our heroic narrator, Butler, who takes up the charge for us, attacking the text with real skill and precision. In the end, it might be hard to determine if you are shell-shocked by Fountain's writing or if it's Butler's mastery of it that has blown your mind. K.W.
