    The world premier recording brings to life William Moses Kunstler, who journeyed from comfortable suburban lawyer to America's most revered and reviled attorney for the civil rights and radical movements of the last half of the 20th Century. This is the perfect recording for lawyers, judges or anyone remotely interested in the law. Plus it is an intimate look into our country's most radical decades.

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

    There are some artists whose seminal work outshines all of their subsequent efforts, and then there are some whose artistry ages well. If we must pull from our simile toolbox, we could compare them to a fine Bordeaux, or to a well made Scotch, though a Lynnae pickle or a Villaggio gorgonzola would be more fun and less tiring. Jeffrey Sweet is of the latter (artists who age well, that is, not a Gorgonzola cheese.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Kunstler?

    I listened to the Kunstler performance while traveling away on a business trip, and I enjoyed it so much that I heard it again on my return. The performances by Keona Welch and Jeff McCarthy were outstanding. And not to take anything away from them, but the actors' jobs were made easier with a well written script, this being one of the best. Kunstler is ever so real, basking in the glory of his years, as is the young law student Kerry, his sometimes admirer, part-time nemesis.


    Which character – as performed by Jeff McCarthy and Crystal Dickinson – was your favorite?

    McCarthy was truly convincing, well seasoned. I would hire him to defend me even knowing he is really an actor.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Kunstler's Last Defense


    Any additional comments?

    The language is vivid and alive, and the pace engaging, and if time is a friend to things epicurean, it is also friendly to the legacy of William Kunstler. The various establishment's actions in Attica, Wounded Knee, the Civil Rights movement, and the Chicago Seven, all are an embarrassment, even to this conservative. Give this wonderfully written play a listen, and then hope that it comes live to a stage near you.
