Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Eunice Wong

Fiction • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Eunice Wong performs this immersive novel about a female Asian American chef who is experiencing an apocalyptic event in Earth's near future. The unnamed narrator is unable to return to the U.S. after smog covers the globe, blocking the sunlight and killing most of the planet's plants and animals. To escape impending disaster, the chef takes a job cooking for a billionaire who lives in an isolated compound located on a mountaintop above the smog. As the chef falls in love, creates new dishes, and ponders what her future has in store, Wong beautifully captures her narrative voice. Wong's performance adds layers of emotional depth to a compelling story, creating one of the must-listen audiobooks of the year. K.D.W.
