Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Emily Woo Zeller

Fiction • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Emily Woo Zeller hypnotically mingles edgy tones with sultriness in this noir-style debut novel by 20-year-old Australian Jamie Marina Lau. Zeller gives a solid portrayal of Monk, the straightforward 15-year-old Asian protagonist, and her unembellished view of the world. Juxtaposing velvety tones with moments of sharpness, Zeller brings out the intensity of visceral descriptions that capture the teen's experiences of both warmth and disquieting disappointment. Zeller mimics the narrative's staccato rhythm, successfully revealing the protagonist's chaotic life with her schemer father amid the hustle of Chinatown. Zeller's powerful performance adds texture to the story, making for an absorbing listening experience for those who enjoy coming-of-age narratives. M.F.
