Robin Miles captures the angsty brilliance of matriarch Naomi, while Jason Culp portrays her estranged husband with eloquent restraint. The children in this Manhattan-based shattered family are voiced evocatively. Each narrator gives these heady, flawed, yet compelling characters individuality and grace.
