Biography & Memoir • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Hua Hsu performs his heartfelt memoir about his friendship with Kevin, a Japanese American man killed in a carjacking while they were in college. Hsu describes his early college years as a young man who is determined to cultivate truly unique musical tastes, refusing to indulge in listening to popular artists. Kevin, in contrast, was a stereotypical preppy frat boy. But Kevin's chill nature balances Hsu's uptight persona. As Hsu delivers his gorgeous prose, his performance puts distance between himself and his own story. But in the rare moments his voice breaks with emotion, we can see the tender man beneath, grieving for his lost friend. Even with his slightly removed performance, Hsu's story is sure to soften even the most stoic of hearts. K.D.W. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2022]
