Vikas Adam's warm voice lets us sink into this story of love, loss, and connection. He soothes us, and we need it while experiencing Myshkin's childhood, in which he is abandoned by his mother for a German man. Adam is tender with lyrical prose that illuminates the details of life in India during WWII and afterward. His style is easy on the ears and makes the protagonist's personal tragedy and longing easier to bear. Myshkin's lingering questions about his mother, and her embarrassing non-maternal behavior, are at the core of his trip down memory lane. Adam is an experienced professional, and it shows in his ability to balance the anger and love of a son who becomes a ruminating adult.
