GENIUS & ANXIETY How Jews Changed the World, 1847-1947

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jonathan Davis

History • 18 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Jonathan Davis's sensational narration engages listeners with this volume on noteworthy contributions by Jewish artists, scientists, and politicians from 1847 to 1947. His narration significantly enhances listeners' enjoyment of this audiobook, which is intended for a general audience. Davis's clear enunciation and assured pacing help listeners absorb the abundant research, as well as the narrative focus on social contributions by Jewish individuals as a means to counteract rising anti-Semitism in the U.S. and abroad. He piques listeners' interest with his deliberate phrasing and slight emphasis when imparting intriguing anecdotes, such as the little known correspondence from Eliza Davis to Charles Dickens on his depiction of the Jewish character Fagin in OLIVER TWIST. Davis's fluency with Hebrew, French, and German words adds authenticity. M.J. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2020]
