Narrator Priya Ayyar is a steady guide for this collection of literary short stories. She helps listeners explore a variety of characters and diverse settings that range from South Asia to Portugal. Her narration is steady and serene. Whether delivering a nameless boy's interior monologue or a woman's heartbreak, she approaches each story with a confident tone. Overall, Ayyar is a solid choice for a title that features mostly South Asian characters who are dealing with challenges to their pursuit of happiness. She soothes even as she delivers the difficult circumstances of the characters' lives, which include racial and sexual discrimination. Listeners can dip in and out of these 16 stories at leisure, enjoying Ayyar's consistency throughout. M.R. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2018]
