TWENTY-FIVE BOOKS THAT SHAPED AMERICA

by | Read by Sean Pratt

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2011

Foster’s rundown of the 25 books that he believes form "the myth of America" starts with Ben Franklin's autobiography and THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS. Sean Pratt narrates the essays with a humor and irreverence that still let Foster's analysis come through. Pratt also puts heart into delivering the excerpts from the books. Foster finds surprising connections—such as the cultural relationship between Walt Whitman and Bruce Springsteen. The essays will make listeners think about not just the books they enjoy but also the TV shows and movies they watch and the music they listen to. Written and narrated in a lively style, this production could make listeners rethink casualties of boring lit classes—like MOBY-DICK. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2011]
