Seven talented narrators bring the complex protagonists of Evans's short fiction to life. The stories are a dazzling blend of the personal and the universal, a collection of masterfully crafted moments exploring history, guilt, Blackness, womanhood, American racism, and trauma. Janina Edwards gives an emotional performance of the titular novella about a historian unraveling a mystery steeped in racism. There's a whisper of playfulness in Nicole Lewis's narration of "Richard of York Gave Battle in Vain," about a woman's reckoning with loss on the eve of a friend's wedding. In "Anything Could Disappear," Adenrele Ojo captures all the uncertainty of a young woman who unexpectedly becomes a mother. Evans's writing is confident and spare, and each narrator amplifies the power of the prose in her own particular way. L.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2020]
