Vera Chok narrates this eerie novel full of dreams of talking mushrooms and heartbroken musicians. Song Yan lives with her husband and mother-in-law in her apartment in Beijing. Everyone tells her she should be happy, but instead she exists in a fog of loneliness. Song used to dream of becoming a concert pianist; now she just teaches young students. But when a package of rare mushrooms arrives, it sets off a series of events that will change her life forever. Chok's performance conveys all of Song's heartbreak over her music and lost career. As Song tries to figure out who is sending the mushrooms, Chok's voice skillfully evokes the rising gloom and desperation that Song experiences throughout the story.
