Miller succeeds in showing how the ’20s laid the groundwork for the America later to come. This long work offers a lively narrative and the mellifluous voice of Lloyd James. Capturing the text with excellent pace and occasional vocal characterizations, James’s reading is almost flawless. (There are a few mis-pronunciations.) Miller’s text is interesting and broad-ranging, although his interpretations of the times are largely conventional. Politics gets the bulk of the treatment, but popular culture, economic history, and social life are also extensively examined. M.L.C. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
