Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

It's impossible to hear this posthumously released collection of essays and fiction without heartbreak, knowing it will be So's last. Keong Sim narrates it expertly, infusing it with the electric energy, wry humor, and curiosity that defined So's first story collection, AFTERPARTIES. The fiction pieces, from his unfinished novel STRAIGHT THRU CAMBOTOWN, are full of that same unique energy, and Sim captures it beautifully. Three Cambodian American cousins who are grieving the death of their beloved aunt come to life in So's vivid, fiery prose and Sim's spirited narration. The essays cover a wide range of topics, from pop culture to So's hometown of Stocktown, California. A powerful and moving collection from a writer whose small body of work is an essential contribution to Asian American literature. L.S. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2023]
