GENERATION OCCUPY Reawakening American Democracy

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Alex Boyles

Contemporary Culture • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Alex Boyles presents this inspiring audiobook with deliberate enunciation and creative pacing that make the author's writing sound important, relevant to our times. His flinty vocal tone and strategic use of pauses give the audio appealing impact without calling attention to his outsized talent. The awakened democracy that author Michael Levitin refers to includes voting rights but also the stalled progressive agenda that led to Occupy Wall Street and was subsequently amplified by Bernie Sanders and other Democratic lawmakers. Levitin shows how the 2011 Manhattan demonstration breathed new life into issues like the minimum wage, Black Lives Matter, the #MeToo movement, and more. His sharp historical summaries, stories of his own activism, and Boyles's performance combine to make this a riveting call to action. T.W.
