A white writer tells of his experiences in the Southern states of America after he has had treatments that darken his skin. Sharing his thoughts on prejudice, racial injustice and the times in general, this is a tale that is as powerful now as it was when it first was published. It is a must read for every high school student and adult. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Thomas Keneally's The Great Shame is the story of the Irish diaspora, told in the voice of political prisoners, including some of Keneally's own ancestors. A huge book, it is worth taking the time to read for its information alone, but it is also a pleasure to listen to the language.
