Ajjaz Awad, Nneka Okoye, Olukemi Babalola, and the author work together to bring listeners an eclectic listening experience as varied as this collection of short stories. The narrators enliven these reimaginings of classical literary tales featuring Ghanaian and Nigeran characters, both male and female. Awad brings a deep timbre to the stories he presents, underscoring the international nature of these African and Asian narratives. Okoye and both Bolu and Olukemi Babalola become feisty women who are fighting for love and persisting in the face of loss or obstacles. The ringing tones of the narrators as they energetically present dialogue between characters in perpetual conflict are sure to entertain. Listeners will delight in these performances, which in their dramatic range are reminiscent of the best radio theater. M.R. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2021]
