HALFWAY HOME Race, Punishment, and the Afterlife of Mass Incarceration

by | Read by Cary Hite

Contemporary Culture • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Cary Hite's strong performance enhances an ultimately tragic look at post-incarceration life in America. Miller's text is part academic work and part life story--he is a sociologist and chaplain who has close relatives who have done time. He draws on his personal experience to illustrate what the research shows: Once people are released from prison, they still are not free--their criminal records continue to hurt their chances in almost every aspect of life. For Brown, Black, or poor people, the challenges are especially daunting. Hite's narration is subtle but never dry or flat. He gives the various characters in this audiobook their own voices and lets Miller's writing generate its own outrage. G.S. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2021]
