Narrator Cindy Kay performs Kikuko Tsumura’s deceptively titled work, There’s No Such Thing As an Easy Job, with a fine sense of pacing and an understated affect. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Alan Minskoff discuss her precise narration and the warmth in her voice that grounds the unnamed narrator’s sometimes fantastic experiences. She doesn’t want to work too hard, but in the jobs she finds, she does remarkable things, makes discoveries, solves mysteries, and is a fascinating character to spend time with.
