Narrator Vera Chok delivers an outstanding performance of this debut novel about family, friendship, and memory in Singapore. The story is told from the perspectives of three women: Amisa, a former film star who is now a medium; her isolated daughter, Szu; and Szu's nouveau-riche best friend, Circe. A social media consultant, Circe is tasked with promoting a remake of a horror movie that Amisa starred in in the 1970s. Estranged from Szu, Circe must confront the ghosts of her past. Chok's narration is upbeat and conversational. Her charming voice and accent perfectly embody the multicultural aspects of the three women: prim and proper Amisa, awkward Szu, and self-centered Circe. A unique and engrossing listen. A.C.
