Keeping up with the American dream is proving to be too much for Ike, a Nigerian cab driver in New York City. His life after American college, in particular, his scramble to elide gambling debt, are narrated without embellishment by Dominic Hoffman. The story’s intriguing events, along with Hoffman’s vivid character portrayals, are fully engaging. Hoffman’s understated delivery plays up the irony of life in New York for a man whose culture is being appropriated while he can barely make ends meet. The irony and capriciousness of modern life are shown when Ike returns to Nigeria to steal an idol to sell to wealthy New Yorkers. M.R. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2014]
