Dimple Lala is torn between the traditional life of her Indian parents and the desirable life of an adolescent young woman in the USA. Her choices are colorfully recounted by Marguerite Gavin, who reads with the rhythm of ankle bells and sitar in her soul. But the speed with which she pushes the story forth is too fast. Both the headlong force of the narration and the multiple mispronunciations are disappointing. The quality of Gavin’s voice is most appealing, and her regional accents make the scenes picturesque. With a more attentive director and greater precision in pronunciation, this production would be improved. J.P. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
