Fiction • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Soneela Nankani becomes Dava Shastri, a business mogul and family matriarch, as she leaks fake news of her own death to the media. This is a fun exploration of personal secrets and the legacies we leave behind. Nankani captures the arch tones of a wealthy, mostly superficial elderly woman who actually is dying. From the wide-ranging family members, aghast at their mother's obsession with her own death, to her long-held secrets, this is a romp of a tale that listeners will enjoy. Nankani maximizes the comedy throughout and balances the laughter with a tone of underlying introspection that is appropriate to the theme of mortality. For those who are looking for a unique family saga, there is much to admire here. M.R. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2022]
