Listening becomes almost visual in these accounts of Asian-Americans living in 1960s and ‘70s San Francisco. The 10 related novellas that comprise this work touch on art, politics, activism, and deep Asian familial bonds and traditions. Casting a variety of dynamic performers imbues each novella with a distinct essence and power, resulting in a listening experience that is always fresh. The characters are diverse, and the performances offer an astonishing spectrum of accents and expression. The patchwork quilt of historical experience ultimately evolves into depictions of today's vibrant Asian-American culture. A.W.
