This audiobook takes a sociological look at Southern California in the time leading up to the building and opening of Dodger Stadium in 1962. It's a story about immigration, subsidized housing, and other topics, and narrator David Owen Nelson brings an appropriate tone to the work. His beautiful Spanish accent, used for Spanish words and names, is a delight to hear, and the author's passion for his topic comes through as well. It's fair to say the Elysian Park neighborhood in L.A. designated for the stadium was disputed territory. The author humanizes the legal battles that took place over many years through the eyes of several people. Nelson's enunciation is excellent, but what is most notable is the dignity he gives to each character. M.B. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2020]
