The group of narrators gathered to perform this short story collection creates a diverse array of voices. As each narrates a story or two, the total effect is a chorus that captures the many slices of life presented by the author. From the lush tones of Cassandra Campbell to the slightly clipped, mechanical tenor of Will Damron, we are guided by masterful characterizations through a wide range of settings and plots. Zaineb Jah gives a heartfelt performance of the terrifying life of Promise in "All the Names for God." As a young girl, she and her friend are kidnapped, raped, and married by men in a terrorist organization suggestive of Boko Haram. Jah magnifies the magical realism in this story, as do others throughout the collection. M.R. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2018]
