    Lizz Winstead, co-creator of The Daily Show and one of today's most hilarious comedians and insightful social critics, pens a brilliant account of how she discovered her comedic voice. In this collection of autobiographical essays, Winstead vividly recounts how she fought to find her own voice, both as a comedian and as a woman, and how humor became her most powerful weapon in confronting life's challenges.

    The author of Across the Wire offers brilliant investigative reporting of what went wrong when, in May 2001, a group of 26 men attempted to cross the Mexican border into the desert of southern Arizona. Only 12 men came back out.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, everyone should know the whole story of "illegal immigration" in order to understand the real struggle these humans endure.

    The way the author illustrates the backgrounds that motivate the immigrants as well as how the author puts an empathetic face on the border patrol.


    Have you listened to any of Luis Alberto Urrea’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    If you could give The Devil's Highway a new subtitle, what would it be?

    The how and why of desperate people seeking "the American dream".

    Story

    Greg Palast has spent the last 30 years getting the goods on corporate con men and political hucksters. Now he and his special guests cut through the TV news babytalk in Armed Madhouse. Armed with more than 50 classified documents and confidential memos, Palast brings you the stories not allowed in The New York Times.

    Story
    If you could sum up Armed Madhouse in three words, what would they be?

    Awesome, unique, brilliant


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The way the author logically pieced together the story while backing up his statements w/ facts from numerous sources


    What does Greg Palast bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Real passion, anger, and empathy!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The facts re; how much power is held by so few and those in power's lack of empathy, decency, and morality. All the powerful had was a lust for more money and even more power.


    Any additional comments?

    WOULD YOU PLEASE TELL THE PUBLISHER THAT THERE ARE MANY OF US WHO WANT TO SEE "Vulture's Picnic" IN AND AUDIO FORMAT. Palast REALLY comes alive in his audio presentations. Also, thanks for sponsoring "The Majority Report" in however way you do it. I discovered both Naomi Klein and Greg Palast on either "The Majority Report" or on Sam Seder's other podcast and radio show "Ring of Fire" I am a lousy reader and coupled with that fact, I do some monotonous work at times, Audible sure has made my life a whole lot more interesting and fun. Also I chatted on line w/ David from your company this AM and he was more than helpful. THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL THAT ALL OF YOU DO! Sincerely; Tom Ehrenberg, Eagle, CO.
