A diverse ensemble of narrators breathes life into these 22 quirky and genre-bending stories on war, politics, family, and memory. The stories are intimately and compellingly performed as the narrators take turns, beginning with the titular work "Fly Already" and moving to more downbeat works like "The Birthday of a Failed Revolutionary" and to the somber standout, "Pineapple Crush." The stories range from humorous to bleak and from everyday to strange; the narrators capture the blend of moods with their varied voices and vocal harmony. Each story is just enough for one sitting, and listeners may crave more. Those who want profound narratives will find something to relate to in this collection.
