Lucy Liu makes audiobook narration debut with Celeste Ng’s ‘Our Missing Hearts’

  • Legendary actor Lucy Liu will narrate bestselling author Celeste Ng’s upcoming novel “Our Missing Hearts.”
  • Penguin Random House Audio announced the news on Wednesday.
  • “Our Missing Hearts” follows the story of Bird Gardner, a 12-year-old boy whose Chinese American poet mother, Margaret, left their family when he was only nine.
  • “For a decade, 12-year-old Bird and his father’s lives have been governed by laws written to preserve ‘American culture’ in the wake of years of economic instability and violence,” the book’s synopsis states. “To keep the peace and restore prosperity, the authorities are now allowed to relocate children of dissidents, especially those of Asian origin, and libraries have been forced to remove books seen as unpatriotic — including the work of Bird’s mother.”
  • Although this is Liu’s first time lending her voice to narrate an audiobook, the “Charlie’s Angels” star has previously voiced characters from animated series and movies such as “Kung Fu Panda” and the Disney Plus series “Star Wars: Visions.”
  • “Our Missing Hearts” is scheduled for release on Oct. 4.
