Light from Uncommon Stars by Ryka Aoki

On this episode, we discuss our March 2022 Light from Uncommon Stars by Ryka Aoki, a genre-spanning novel about a music teacher seeking souls to pay back a demonic pact, a trans girl runaway who might also be a violin prodigy, a family of interstellar refugees running a donut shop, and their intertwining stories  taking place in the San Gabriel Valley (where Marvin and Reera also happen to live). Listen to our sprawling discussion about this equally sprawling story about love, healing, and the power of music (and food).
