Narrator Katharine Chin nails the dark humor and flat tone of this bizarre and fascinating short story collection. Embodying the detached storyteller, Chin allows the strangeness of the eight stories to pull listeners in and keep them intrigued. Blending fantastical elements and absurdity, the stories include "Los Angeles," about a woman who lives with her 100 ex-boyfriends and a husband, and "Tomorrow," in which a pregnant woman has an arm protruding and growing from her vagina. Woven into these unusual works are explorations of the immigrant experience, loneliness, relationships, and more. Reverb effects are utilized throughout, enhancing the haunting, surreal effect of the stories. The result is a memorable, thought-provoking collection.
