This audiobook collection of stories by the critically acclaimed Mexican author Cristina Rivera Garza is experimental in nature, with some enigmatic works straddling the line between reality and surreality. The 23 stories, written over the course of more than 30 years, have themes ranging from love to immigration to the search for meaning. An ensemble of seven talented narrators divides up the reading to varying effect. In the more nonlinear works, such as the two Pripyat stories, the narrators have tried to inject some additional drama with the effect coming off as overdone, distracting, and even gravelly. The stories with a more traditional structure are handled capably by the narrators, with appropriate tone and cadence. S.E.G. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2023]
