A perfect collaboration of the author and five narrators, Greta Jung, Kim Mai Guest, Nancy Wu, Emily Woo Zeller, Samantha Quan, bring out the forceful emotions in this collection of interconnected stories. Each of these female Chinese-Americans narrates with a clarity of voice that gets to the core of raw emotions in this portrayal of the immigrant experience in America. Each voice bristles with the grittiness of the narrative, conveying complex and distressing elements of politics, poverty, and social change within cultures and generations--both in China during the Cultural Revolution and in America. The protests of angry, disturbed children and wailings of martyred mothers effectively express the compelling and often vulgar content and make for a listening experience that is thought-provoking and powerful, but also disturbing and controversial.
