FAMILY IN SIX TONES A Refugee Mother, an American Daughter

by | Read by Elyse Dinh-McCrillis, Vyvy Nguyen

Biography & Memoir • 11.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Multilingual narrators Elyse Dinh-McCrillis and Vyvy Nguyen give performances that capture the complicated experiences of a Vietnamese refugee mother and her American daughter as they try to communicate amid their multigenerational struggles in the U.S. Dinh-McCrillis and Nguyen capture the discomfort between a mother who has seen untold horrors of war in Vietnam and a teenage daughter who finds her mother's native tongue and history challenging to her American identity. The narrators skillfully pronounce words that may be foreign to a Western ear. Both shine as they perform the often lyrical prose of this biographical audiobook.
