Superman: The High-Flying History of America’s Most Enduring Hero

Larry Tye, read by Scott Brick. Random House Audio, unabridged, 12 CDs, 13 hrs., $45 ISBN 978-0-307-99010-5
In his latest, journalist Tye presents a comprehensive look at all things Superman, charting the history of the famed hero and detailing everything from his creation during the Great Depression by Jewish high school students Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel to his evolution into cultural icon. Along the way Tye touches on Superman as seen in film and on television, the struggles of his creators to gain recognition for their work, and everything in between. Having previously performed several Superman novels, Scott Brick proves a perfect narrator for this audio edition. His reading is clear, compelling, and conversational, and he knows just when to modulate his tone or cadence for emphasis and clarity. Always entertaining, this audiobook is a must for fans of the Man of Steel and anyone interested in comic book history. A Random House hardcover. (June)
