Laurence Fishburne serves as the lead narrator in this powerful tribute to long-serving Congressman Elijah Cummings, who died shortly before the book’s completion. Each chapter relates a story from Cummings’s past to a challenge he faced in working with President Trump and his administration. Fishburne’s animated and resonant voice is a perfect match to Cummings’s memorable public speaking style; it acts as a reflection rather than an attempt at imitation. In addition to Fishburne, the audiobook features a foreword written and delivered by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and a final chapter narrated by Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, the congressman’s widow. This unique and engaging audio production concludes with recordings of several eulogies from Cummings’s funeral. N.M. 2021 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2020]
