HUNGER A Novella and Stories

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Eunice Wong

Fiction • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1998

Narrator Eunice Wong delivers an emotionally absorbing performance of this poignant novella and five short stories. This fictional compilation explores complexities of the Asian-American experience, including issues such as assimilation and intergenerational trauma. In the titular novella, HUNGER, Wong magnificently renders the heartbreaking tone and presents authentic characterizations. She displays her impressive vocal range and acting skills in voicing a struggling married couple and their children who are nearly destroyed by the father's unfulfilled musical aspirations. In the remaining stories, Wong continues to engross listeners by evoking humanity and pathos through continued themes of familial loss and yearning for love. A haunting collection beautifully captured by a rich, memorable performance. V.T.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2022]
