ROUGH SLEEPERS Dr. Jim O'Connell's Urgent Mission to Bring Healing to Homeless People

by | Read by Tracy Kidder

Biography & Memoir • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

At this time, the difficult circumstances of approximately 150 million people who are unhoused in the United States fill the news. Author Tracy Kidder's light, somewhat raspy voice unfolds the story of Dr. Jim O'Connell and his clinic partners, who have devoted themselves to bringing comprehensive and compassionate healthcare to those living on the streets of Boston. Although Kidder follows Dr. Jim through years of street rounds and clinics, the focus is firmly placed on those who use their services, showing how poverty often leads to alcoholism and drug addiction, rather than being the cause of it. Kidder's approachable performance is in sync with his captivating writing style. He provides a riveting, intimate glimpse of the lives of rough sleepers that is both inspiring and heartbreaking.
