RAISING LAZARUS Hope, Justice, and the Future of America's Overdose Crisis

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Beth Macy

Contemporary Culture • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Few works bring home the realities, the sadness, and the politics of the opioid crisis as well as this audiobook. Narrated with conviction by author Beth Macy, this firsthand account presents the victims and the unsung heroes who fight valiantly to help them and to bring about meaningful change in a system created for profit, not health. Macy's performance hits every note, from the emotional torment that strikes families to the outrage against the companies and others that enable and facilitate it. Where this audiobook succeeds most is in Macy's passionate portrayals of the ordinary people who are seeking justice for themselves and for future generations. D.J.S.
