Narrators Andrea Bang and Yuta Takenaka add refreshing vitality to the voices in this eclectic collection of stories showcasing the perspectives of young Asian-Canadians. Bang's spritely tone gives her voice a youthful innocence that creates an interesting contrast when she spits out crisp expletives in a story called "God Damn, How Real Is This?" With precise articulation she portrays a movie starlet in a story called "Rerun." Takenaka infuses liveliness into the title story, and his deep, resonant voice provides the perfect contrast to Bang's treble. Both Bang and Takenaka's spot-on pronunciations of various Asian words capture the characters in their elements. Overall, solid performances by Bang and Takenaka turn these engaging slices of life into provocative listening experiences. M.F.
