SUKEY'S FAVORITE An audio experience to grow on Ordinary Resurrections: Children in the Years of Hope (abridged, $17.95, 1567409121), is Jonathan Kozol's very personal, very moving account of young children living in the South Bronx, one of the poorest, most deeply segregated inner-cities in our country. That such poverty and deprivation exists in America is profoundly dismaying, that these children can somehow be generous, gentle, and understanding, can share their silliness and sorrows the little mysteries that make them brave, offers a glimmer of hope. Kozol takes us to places we don't ordinarily go, into minds and hearts we should know.
