This audiobook will certainly become part of the discussion about the extent to which economic opportunity, family dynamics, and race shape one’s destiny. Written by Peace’s roommate for all four years at Yale, the story is at once hopeful, gritty, transcendent, and tragic. George Newbern’s calm but insistent voice sets the tone. His approach to the work is unhurried, and he makes sure we hear every word with the nuance it deserves in order to convey the author’s message. Newbern uses this same method with character voices, making sure that he differentiates them enough from the narrative and using enough inflection that we understand the people’s emotions and motivations.
