Fiction • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Peter Ganim, Suehyla El-Attar Young, and Fajer Al-Kaisi perform this critically acclaimed National Book Award finalist. Using fantastical elements and touches of the absurd, the short story collection features Afghan and Afghan American characters who are all dealing with the long-lasting devastation of America's war on terror. Young narrates stories centered around women who are navigating complex familial relationships, creating an intimate feel for each of the stories. Al-Kaisi and Ganim perform stories predominantly about the experiences of male protagonists--their connections to their culture, their search for community, and the challenges they face immigrating to the U.S. Each narrator captures the stories' multifaceted characters, making each story more captivating than the last.
