The performances by multiple narrators of Minot's collection of short stories create a collective world of fascinating life moments, and one afterlife. Minot's audiobook is filled with compelling human detail. The results are moving and occasionally shocking. Finding the perfect tone of sadness, Andrew Eiden narrates a gently heartbreaking story of a dying woman calling out to another man in the presence of her husband. Kristen Sieh conveys the startling kindness of a barista serving customers at a café for the deceased. Alex McKenna's performance navigates the emotional complexity of a young college student who absorbs the impact of a male professor propositioning her. All the performances exude a kind of detached observation while maintaining an insightful intimacy. S.P.C.
