Iranian author Dina Nayeri's perspective on truth is shaped by her refugee status in a Midwestern town and her appetite for gripping social issues. Ayesha Antoine has the sensibilities needed to narrate the author's stories and intelligent observations on how people communicate. Antoine's interpretations of these riveting anecdotes and keen insights make the author's gift for melodic language and dramatic narrative shine brightly. The gripping stories of refugees, prisoners of war, and others in cross-cultural interactions can be painful to hear as they illuminate how fragile and corruptible truth can be. But they are beautifully written and performed reminders of truth's relativity, and astute analyses of how a culture's values and social codes impact what we hear and accept from others.
