A FREE MAN A True Story of Life & Death in Delhi

by | Read by Vikas Adam

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

This look at the lives of workers in Delhi, the capital of the world's largest democracy, is journalism at its finest. Narrator Vikas Adam tells the story of these men as though they were characters in a novel. Adam brings the dialogue to the listener with the cadence and liveliness of authentic speech. He uses a heavy, affected South Asian accent to render the English speech of the masdoor, or building laborers. But the listener is given a break from this style in the narrative, which is delivered with a much lighter touch. In this contemporary story of migration, economics, and socialization, these invisible workers come alive. M.R. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2013]
