Micky Shiloah's emotional and introspective narration is just as powerful as playwright David Adjmi's prose in this lyrical memoir about family and identity. Adjmi writes about his Brooklyn childhood in an insular religious community of Syrian Jews, his struggles with depression, his continual sense of not fitting in--whether due to his being gay or his doubts about God--and his search for meaning through art and education. Shiloah's narration, full of humor and pain, has a propulsive momentum that drives the narrative forward. The visceral quality of his voice captures every nuance of Adjmi's gorgeous writing. He's especially good at voicing the various Brooklyn accents of Adjmi's family and friends, making this an immersive listening experience.
