RUNNING THE BOOKS The Adventures of an Accidental Prison Librarian

by | Read by Dustin Rubin

Biography & Memoir • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Steinberg recounts his background as a Harvard-educated Jewish obituary writer who finds himself working at a prison library. His exploits and anecdotes about the prison’s dynamics, inmates and staff, and miscellaneous events are amusing. Dustin Rubin reflects the author’s voice in the narrative and provides realistic voices for the prisoners. He avoids being overdramatic or exploitative and adheres to Steinberg’s characterizations. Even though the book lacks direction overall, Rubin’s warm, inviting tone makes listening enjoyable. L.E. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2011]
