Unabridged, 9 CDs, 10 hours
Read by Tom Stechschulte
A riveting novel of labor strife and apocalyptic violence that maps the frontier where the masses become a mob
At once a relentlessly fast-paced, admirably observed novel of social unrest and the story of a young man's struggle for identity, "In Dubious Battle" is set in the California apple country, where a strike by migrant workers against rapacious landowners spirals out of control, as principled defiance metamorphoses into blind fanaticism. Caught in the upheaval is Jim Nolan, a once aimless man who finds himself in the course of the strike, briefly becomes its leader, and is ultimately crushed in its service.

Review quote

"Dramatically intense, beautifully written. It is the real thing; it has a vigor of sheer storytelling that may sweep away many prejudices."
