Narrator Vikas Adam on TELL ME HOW TO BE

Narrator Vikas Adam tells AudioFile listeners about narrating TELL ME HOW TO BE by Neel Patel, a relatable novel about the relationship between a mother and son—characters Vikas says he wishes he could spend time with in real life.

"If you like stories about family, stories about love between family members, and also the secrets that family members keep from each other, this is definitely the book for you."—Narrator Vikas Adam

by Neel Patel, read by Vikas Adam

Narrator Vikas Adam does an excellent job of balancing the angst-ridden Akash with the mourning Renu in this mother-and-son story of love and loss. Adam treats both of them tenderly as the story explores the sale of their family home after the death of their father and husband. Adam is pensive, thoughtful, and ruminating as the 20-something Akash, who is hiding his sexuality and boyfriend from his mother. As mother and son confront the memories in the material goods they try to shed, Adam makes listeners care for their internal and external conflicts. Fans of diasporic literature will be engrossed.
