THE POISONED CITY Flint's Water and the American Urban Tragedy

by | Read by Xe Sands

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

The tainted and harmful water supply of Flint, Michigan, did not happen accidentally. It resulted from an ongoing failure of individuals and institutions and reflects how our nation values some lives over others. To communicate such a blunt message, Xe Sands is the perfect narrator because her voice is smartly intimate. Her inviting tone comes through like a confidante's whisper and transforms the harsh issues that Clark highlights into a narrative that listeners will be ready to hear. Sands uses both emphasis and tone to help listeners navigate the technical parts of Clark's audiobook, as when she dives into the breakdown of chemicals or the legal responsibilities associated with the poisoning of public water.
