Asian and Pacific Voices

Numerous countries, distinct cultures—find stories that speak directly to you.
My Chinese-Taiwanese grandma used to say that our Asian community comes from a long line of spoken words. From the ancient deities in our fairy tales about world creation, to the heroes whose achievements are in our epic poems, we are the descendants of storytelling.
Stories help us form our voice, discover our place in both old and new worlds, and define our identity in the continuum of time. Generation after generation, we connect and pass along information through the bonds of oral history. I hope some of these titles will resonate with you, move you, inspire you, and bring you (back) into the uniquely fascinating universe of Asian storytelling, just like my grandma’s vivid nursery rhyme narrations did for me. — Hsin, Audible Editor
