Earphones Award for Ming Tsu
THANK YOU AudioFile Magazine! So honored and so proud to win an Earphones Award for Tom Lin’s outstanding debut novel THE THOUSAND CRIMES OF MING TSU.
From AudioFile Magazine:
Narrator Feodor Chin beautifully performs this revenge story set in the post Civil War American West. Ming Tsu, born in America and orphaned at birth, was raised by a California crime boss who taught him how to survive in a violent world. After Ming is forcibly recruited by the Union Pacific Railroad as a manual laborer, he escapes, determined to track down every man who tore him away from his white wife. He partners with a blind mystic and falls in with a traveling carnival of misfits who seem to perform genuine miracles. Chin delivers on all fronts: capturing the lyrical flow of the text, voicing authentic-sounding accents, building the mystery and tension, and projecting Ming's contrasting feelings of passion and rage.
