Media critic Maya Phillips narrates her own memories and knowledge of fantasy, superheroes, sci-fi, and anime through a millennial lens. Her life as a New Yorker, as well as a Black woman, allows her to offer a unique perspective when examining certain aspects of nerd culture. Phillips's crisp voice delivers the correct pronunciation of both New York places, like Roosevelt Bridge, and Japanese anime names. She addresses the audience as "listener" a few times, a change made for the audiobook version. Each chapter is a separate essay; topics include anxiety and Black heroes. This nonfiction work calls for more of a reading than the demanding type of delivery often required for fiction audiobooks. S.S. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2023]
