Aliens in America
- By: Sandra Tsing Loh
- Narrated by: Sandra Tsing Loh
- Length: 1 hr and 15 mins
- Original Recording
Contemporary satirist Loh spins a darkly comic, semi-autobiographical tale of growing up middle-class Chinese-German in Southern California. This comic monologue is for sons and daughters everywhere who feel that their parents must have beamed to Earth from another planet.
Liked the stories -- hated the delivery

Love Sandra but not this
I am a fan of Sandra Tsing Loh but found this un-listenable. It's a live performance in front of a theatre audience and she seems to have lacked confidence that her normal low key humor and subtle reading would carry the day. She is practically screeching much of the time; I hardly recognized her. Cleary she learned with later experience that less is more. I'll bet if she went back into the studio and re-did this piece it would be great, but as it is your better off without it.
