Mira Sethi narrates her debut collection of stories with a refreshing confidence that produces a mesmerizing audiobook. Warm, full tones pull listeners into the works, which feature relationships explored through various lenses. Thoughtful pacing adds depth to engrossing characters whose actions play out against the culture and landscapes of Pakistan. Characters' warring desires are expertly expressed as various situations play out. For example, in one story, an actress is learning the ropes of a toxic industry; in another, political intrigue comes to the fore; and in another, the joys and difficulties of romance are revealed. Sethi's intentions and ideas as an author are captured in her delivery. The layered meanings of her stories are illuminated through inflection, varied accents, and strong characterizations.
