Biography & Memoir • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Kat Chow narrates this memoir about her mother's death with quiet grace. She recounts stories about her Chinese-American family, from her own childhood and from her parents' and grandparents' lives, with openness and curiosity. Her voice remains steady throughout most of the audiobook, even when she's describing her mother's cancer treatment and the grief and loneliness of her mother's death. That evenness matches the quality of her prose, which is flowing and lyrical. It's especially moving listening to her speak in the voices of her mother and father--she does so with love, tenderness, and sometimes amusement. This beautiful audiobook is both an elegy for Chow's mother and a celebration of her own Chinese-American heritage. L.S. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2021]
