THE VIRAL UNDERCLASS The Human Toll When Inequality and Disease Collide

by | Read by Steven W. Thrasher, Jonathan M. Metzl [Foreword]

Contemporary Culture • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

This audiobook examines the impact of viruses like HIV and COVID on people without resources and political connections. Narrated with intensity and empathy by author Steven W. Thrasher, the production takes the perspectives of victims, their friends, and other activists. Thrasher's delivery channels the raw emotions, particularly frustration and animus, that those who contract these and other conditions feel because of their lack of privilege. While many books consider more well-known people and more common societal themes, this study brings to life the inequities often overlooked by the traditional press and other chroniclers. Thanks to Thrasher and his memorable performance, these previously unheard stories are given a voice. D.J.S. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2022]
