Another Day in the Death of America

Author: Gary Younge

Reader: Mirron Willis

Format: 9 CDs (Unabridged)

On an average day in America, seven young people aged 19 or under will be shot dead. Award-winning Guardian journalist Gary Younge tells the stories of the lives lost during the course of a single day in the U.S. It could have been any day, but Younge has chosen November 23, 2013. From Jaiden Dixon (9), shot point-blank by his mother's ex-boyfriend on his doorstep in Ohio, to Pedro Dado Cortez (16), shot by an enemy gang on a street corner in California, the narrative crisscrosses the country over a period of 24 hours to reveal the powerful human stories behind the statistics. "Thoughtful, evenhanded."—Entertainment Weekly

Bunk

Author: Kevin Young

Reader: Mirron Willis

Format: 16 CDs (Unabridged)

A noted critic traces the history of the hoax as a peculiarly American phenomenon, from P.T. Barnum and Edgar Allan Poe up through J.T. LeRoy and Donald Trump. He finds that fakery is woven from stereotype and suspicion. Young asks what itmeans to live in a post-factual world of "truthiness" where everything is up for interpretation and a pervasive cynicism damages our ideas of reality, fact, and art.

But there is much more to this story than is commonly told. In Game Changers, Art Chansky reveals an intense saga of race, college sport, and small-town politics.

He Calls Me By Lightning

Author: S. Jonathan Bass

Reader: Mirron Willis

Format: 11 CDs (Unabridged)

Caliph Washington's life was never supposed to matter. As a black teenager from the vice-ridden city of Bessemer, Alabama, Washington was wrongfully convicted of killing an Alabama policeman in 1957. Sentenced to death, he came within minutes of the electric chair-nearly a dozen times. A Kafka-esque legal odyssey in which Washington's original conviction was overturned three times before he was finally released in 1972, his story is the kind that pervades the history of American justice. Here, in the hands of historian S. Jonathan Bass, Washington's ordeal and life are rescued from anonymity and become a moving parable of one man's survival and perseverance in a hellish system.

The N Word

Author: Jabari Asim

Reader: Mirron Willis

A renowned cultural critic untangles the history and future of racism through its most volatile word. He shows how the slur has both reflected and spread the scourge of bigotry in America over the last 400 years, and argues that the slur keeps blacks at the bottom of the socioeconomic ladder. His goal is to loosen this its grip on our national psyche. "An exhaustive history... clear, engaging writing."—Publishers Weekly
