Fiction • 5.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Arima's stunning collection of short stories is well rooted in Nigerian culture, both diasporic and native. So it's just as well that narrator Adjoa Andoh has an eclectic palette of accents to draw from as she moves effortlessly across the globe from story to story. Andoh brings a certain coarseness, in particular, to her often ferocious portrayals of motherhood--a coarseness that proves valuable in a collection of stories dominated by Nigerian mothers no listener would disobey in a hurry. Arima shifts from mythological to modern romance in a heartbeat, offering Andoh the opportunity to showcase her dramatic versatility with only the rarest of missteps in an otherwise exemplary readings. These stories are phenomenal and, in combination with Andoh's reading, are not to be missed. Z.S. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2017]
