FIRE IN THE ASHES Twenty-Five Years Among the Poorest Children in America

by | Read by Keythe Farley

Contemporary Culture • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Kozol returns with another heart-wrenching exploration of the stratified landscape of opportunity in America. It’s made all the more potent through Keythe Farley’s narration. Kozol reflects on some of the failures and successes social welfare actions have had with people he’s been close to at different times in his work with underserved and underprivileged children. He traces their trajectory and reflects on his own role as well as how society helped or hindered each person. Farley embodies the older and caring tone of Kozol, teasing out the hope and dismay as Kozol shares his stories. Farley captures the personalities of the different people featured in the audiobook while also doing well with emphasis and delivery to tease out Kozol’s nuanced feelings.
