This exhaustive biography covers the tennis great's life--his childhood in Virginia, his time at UCLA and then his career. Desean Terry's narration remains steady as he recaps Ashe's emergence as a quiet athlete who slowly begins immersing himself in knowledge and books to shape his opinions of world affairs, eventually becoming a respected leader off the court. Terry produces light imitations of some of the sources throughout the book, appropriate voices and accents that enhance the story, never overshadowing it. The only hiccup is his occasional mispronunciation of several names, but it doesn't mar the overall narration. M.B. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2019]
