With its stellar ensemble of narrators, this surreal short story collection creates an immersive listening experience. The narrators rotate with each story, making each one shine. The works feature a chorus of dead cousins, a woman who is trying to survive a catastrophic flood, and the delight of two girls who are falling in love. The stories revel in the unexpected, delightfully surprising listeners at every turn. The narrators are excellent, with Nancy Wu, Natalie Naudus, and Catherine Ho seamlessly moving back and forth between characters of all ages, keeping pace with each story's mood. Elaine Wang and Annie Q shine, in particular, perfectly capturing the angst of youth, the quick snap of a teenager's retort. Together, all the narrators are the perfect cast for this audiobook.
