Narrator Allison Hiroto provides an energetic and intense voice for Kan's memoir about three generations of family who live in China. The former NEW YORK TIMES reporter explains the intricate details of the One Child policy, including forced birth control and abortions, against the backdrop of her own mother's experiences. Listeners will be spellbound by the intimacy of these little known details of everyday struggles for survival. Hiroto maximizes the spirit of the author's rebellious family--from a mother who hid a forbidden pregnancy to the author herself, a journalist who works in one of the world's most oppressive regimes. Her narration is lively and engaging, well suited to this unexpected feminist memoir of ordinary women in extraordinary circumstances. Listeners will be cheering the Kan women on.
