WASTELAND The Secret World of Waste and the Urgent Search for a Cleaner Future

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Chris Harper

Contemporary Culture • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Chris Harper has his work cut out for him in this chilling audiobook about waste around the globe. His challenge is to keep to a reportorial tone amid the horrifying reports of toxic mountains of garbage. He maintains the right pace and cadence as he recounts the author’s discoveries, which include an island of plastic three times the size of France in the Pacific, corporate mismanagement through misrepresented facts, the idiocy of fast fashion, and other forms of outright crime and widespread greed. Happily, the author’s combined journalistic and personal approach is aided by Harper’s British coolness. He captures the author’s urgent call for change in these profiles, stories, and facts. Franklin-Wallis’s own behavior includes recycling vehemently and learning to sew. A.D.M.
