Fiction • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrators Catherine Ho, Nancy Wu, and Ren Hanami work together to create a rich audio experience for this multigenerational saga of a Taiwanese family haunted by its past. For fans of international fiction, these are immersive chapters. The narrators help to orient us to the complex story. Mother begins by telling Daughter folktales; the one about a tiger is that of their family. Through a mix of magical realism and contemporary issues, we are taken from Taiwan to America, from the past to the present. Ho, Wu and Hanami give voice to three women in this resilient family--mother, daughter, and grandmother. Working together, they deliver a moving record of one family's exploration of love, identity, and sexuality. M.R. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2020]
