EACH OF US A DESERT

by | Read by Frankie Corzo

Young Adult Ages 14+ • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Frankie Corzo narrates the story of Xochital, the cuentista of her remote village. She has the magical ability to accept people's stories of guilt and wrongdoing and purge them into the desert, effectively cleansing them. An unexpected and jolting confession leaves Xochital questioning her role, and Corzo's gentle narration fits Xo's introspection as she plans to journey across the desert for answers. Corzo fluidly shifts from English to Spanish and back in this atmospheric audiobook, adopting a leisurely pace that allows listeners to savor the setting, poetic language, and slow-burn romance. Corzo creates distinct voices for a variety of casually queer Latinx characters. This meditative listen shouldn't be missed. A.K.R. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2020]
