Shteyngart offers listeners an America of our own making. Barry Cohen's hedge fund business has tanked (and is being investigated by the SEC); his smart wife, Seema, called him "soulless"; and his son has been diagnosed with autism. What is he to do? Why, hit the road, of course! Dual narrators Arthur Morey and Soneela Nankani successfully embody their characters' sarcastic and sorrowful psyches. While Barry bumbles through pre-Trump America on a Greyhound bus, Seema finds herself reconsidering her and her son's American dream. Morey pinpoints Barry's self-absorption and privileged naïveté, and deftly handles his fellow bus riders by not overdoing their accents. Nankani's Seema is also painted with a rich emotional brush that elevates the writing. E.A.N. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2018]
