Fiction • 3.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

When an author chooses to read his own work, the challenge can be as difficult as a director starring in his own film. Paul Yoon proves his abilities as both a narrator and a writer; his voice infuses an overarching sense of sadness into this melancholy story. The sensation of pain is palpable in Yoon's tone, which at first may fall upon the ears as flat. As the reader gets to know the character of Yohan, a young Korean defector, this sensation is essential to experiencing the character's journey from the trauma of war to personal healing. Yoon's precise diction, steady pace, and lack of emotional expression--no variations in pitch--capture the character's self-imposed control.
