These short stories hum with life through the steady cadence and confident tones of narrators Neil Shah and Lina Patel. Whether portraying a Bengali tiger's thoughts or a woman’s grief, Shah or Patel, depending on who is telling which story, will have listeners holding their breath. They pace the stories so well that listeners will be eager for the climax of each story. Both mimic Indian-accented English through intonation and pronunciation and are fairly successful. Appropriately, Patel’s female immigrant characters come through more gently than Shah's male characters. On the whole, this is a wonderful jaunt through a first story collection.
