Daniel K. Isaac, Dominic Hoffman, and Shannon Tyo present a layered performance of Park's much anticipated latest. Isaac narrates the audiobook's framing story involving burned-out writer-turned-tech-employee Soon Sheen, who finds a manuscript detailing the "true" history of the Korean Provisional Government. This history, narrated with a mix of passion and poignance by Tyo, relays pivotal stories from Korea's past--perhaps fictional or, if real, excised from the traditional historical record. Dominic Hoffman gruffly narrates the audiobook's third strand, the story of a Black Korean War veteran whose imaginative sci-fi novels reveal uncomfortable truths. The narrators capture the many facets of Park's puzzle-like novel, seamlessly switching from melancholic to stirring and from funny to heartbreaking. An ingenious work, superbly presented by a talented team of narrators. S.A.H. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2024]
