ALEC MACGILLIS ON AMERICA THROUGH THE LENS OF AMAZON

ProPublica reporter Alec MacGillis’s new book Fulfillment: Winning and Losing in One-Click America is not another inside account from a former Amazon employee or exposé of the dominant company in the country.

Rather, it is a literary investigation of the America that falls within that Amazon’s growing shadow.

As MacGillis shows, Amazon epitomizes a land where winner and loser cities and regions are drifting steadily apart while work has become increasingly rudimentary and isolated.

Join us for a look at who’s thriving and who’s struggling to make ends meet in this rapidly changing economy in this installment of Leonard Lopate at Large on WBAI.
