Jonathan Kozol draws a vivid picture of an urban ghetto, with its hunger, poverty, drugs, disease and violence, through a series of interviews with the people of the Mott Haven section of the South Bronx, the poorest congressional district in the country. Dick Hill adds human voices as both the interviewer and the interviewees--the children, parents and ministers of Mott Haven. He skillfully captures the different voices, dialects and accents of the residents, differentiating between young and old, male and female. There is a sensitivity and calm in his performance that poignantly conveys the contradiction between the faith and optimism of the children and the "physically repellent and profoundly dangerous" conditions of their surroundings. These voices will stay with the listener for a long time. A.A.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 97]
