This is a family story for the 21st century, and Joy Osmanski navigates the audiobook with panache. Listeners meet the Huang family patriarch and his entire family when he is diagnosed with cancer. Each member is carrying their own challenges. Osmanski is adept with shifting voices from character to character. She adds accents that largely enhance the listening experience, or at least do not detract from it. Sometimes cynically funny, other times melancholy, but always observant, what emerges from this audiobook is an interesting set of portraits of contemporary personalities and a study of how families interact in the face of adversity.
