I CAME AS A SHADOW An Autobiography

by | Read by Jesse Washington

Biography & Memoir • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

The listener might think Jesse Washington's voice sounds too young to reflect that of the venerable basketball coach John Thompson, who died in 2020. But he settles quickly into just the right tone to help shape the autobiography. The late Thompson's life, opinions, and career are interesting topics. He never pulls punches in this honest reflection of his life. Much of what Washington delivers to the listener is how Thompson's experiences shaped his opinions on race. From his time growing up to his remarkable career at Georgetown University, contractual deals with Nike, and meaningful moments off the court--this is a fascinating audiobook. Washington brings the right level of emotion, doesn't imitate anyone, and gives Thompson's words the respect they deserve. A must-listen for anyone whose mind is made up on Thompson.
