by | Read by Priya Ayyar, Ron Butler

Fiction • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrators Priya Ayyar and Ron Butler work together to chart the ups and downs of the Chandaria family's unexpected move from the U.S. to Kenya. As they confront long buried secrets, listeners soak up the narrators' expert performances. Ayyar sounds young, hopeful, and determined as Sunil, the rebellious son who doesn't want to be a doctor or marry an Indian woman. She describes his contrary life at an upbeat, energetic tempo that captures Sunil's attempts to integrate into American culture. Butler creates a memorable character in Bimal, the cousin who lives in Kenya. He delivers Bimal's unique accented English with a gentle cadence. Ayyar and Butler trade off chapters, showcasing their talents and keeping listeners entertained throughout. M.R. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2019]
