    Would you try another book from Kurt Andersen and/or the narrator?

    Wanted to use this for in class reading with my students and was really disappointed! It is simply a public television show featuring different people commenting on their perceptions of the book.Please do not give them your ninety five cents, because they were not upright in their description of this audio download.

    When Malcolm X was assassinated at 39, his book nearly died with him. Today The Autobiography of Malcolm X — a favorite of President Obama and Justice Clarence Thomas alike — stands as a milestone in America’s struggle with race. The Autobiography is also a Horatio Alger tale, following a man’s journey from poverty to crime to militancy to wisdom.

  • "The best radio download"

    11 of 14 helpful votes

    A highly rec. radio show, especially for downloaders like me because it doesn"t outdate (unlike any NPR episode) and has a greater intellectual depth than most. (e.g. American Life). The major critiques you may read are that they mainly inverview book authors. This is true, but not for sales pitches, rather because these people have someting interesting to say and can add more depth and flavor to an interview than impromtu subjects or news related clips. All in all the best radio show for variety, human interest and with good depth. No not all episodes will interest you 8/10 are very good.

    In the new film, Love Is Strange, award-winning actor Alfred Molina plays George, a Catholic school teacher, who, after 39 years, marries his partner Ben, played by John Lithgow. When George’s employer learns of his marriage, they fire him, sending the newlyweds on a difficult journey. Love Is Strange opens wide August 29th. Then, over fifty years ago, writer Michael Harrington’s book, The Other America, predicted that unless American society addressed it’s widespread poverty problem, another journalist decades later would write about the exact same conditions that he had chronicled. Journalist Sasha Abramsky has done just that. His book, The American Way of Poverty: How the Other Half Still Lives, tells the stories of people around the country who are struggling to make it. And finally, we hear a new commentary from children’s book writer and illustrator Daniel Pinkwater.
