Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Vikas Adam, Fajer Al-Kaisi, Iman Nazemzadeh

Young Adult Ages 12+ • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Three gripping narrators come together in a transcendent performance. The story of three generations of an Iranian family starts with Moud, an out gay teen from America who is visiting Tehran. Scared of exposing his sexuality in a new culture, Moud explores his family history from his father’s political activism back to his own grandfather’s journey as a gay man. Vikas Adam’s, Fajer Al-Kaisi’s, and Iman Nazemzadeh’s performances will capture any listener. Their narrations are as different as their respective characters yet carry the same compassion. All performances are raw and stunning. As the story weaves moments of joy and anguish, the core of the performances captures the steadfast hope that these family members will finally reach mutual understanding. G.M.
