Reviews for Clarence Darrow : Attorney for The Damned

Library Journal Reviews 2012 September #1
Attorney Clarence Darrow (1857-1938) is remembered as a fearless defender of the weak and hopeless. In real life, he was both idolized and vilified, and Farrell explains why this man of contradictions should be forgiven his hard edges of egotism, manipulation, and greed. Darrow employed every bit of his heart and energy to fight the ugliness in the world around him. With his straightforward Midwestern accent and slightly husky voice, reader Danny Campbell gives a fine performance, which complements the subject's fascinating life. VERDICT Recommended for all audio collections. ["Like Andrew E. Kersten's Clarence Darrow: American Iconoclast...this book succeeds in presenting Darrow in the fuller context of his life. Highly recommended," read the review of the Doubleday hc, LJ 6/15/11.--Ed.]--Juleigh Muirhead Clark, Colonial Williamsburg Fdn. Lib., VA (c) Copyright 2011.
