Vikas Adam gives a wonderfully affecting performance of this audiobook about almost everything--parent/child relationships, family secrets, immigration, disability, adoption, elder care, marriage, and friendship. With his gift for illuminating moments of emotional complexity, Adam immerses listeners in the complex dynamics between 30-something Remy, who returns to India from the U.S. for the first time since his father's death, and the formidable, erratic mother he remembers but who may no longer exist because of severe illness. Adam expertly inhabits each family member, friend, or hospital staff person with precision, clarity, and a generous heart. He impressively creates female and children's voices that sound natural. His excellent Indian accents and pronunciation of Parsi Gujarati words add authenticity. Adam's narrative talent shines in his perceptive performance of this winning story.
