Selected Shorts. Volume XVI, Fictions for Our Time [compact Disc]

[a Celebration Of The Short Story].
These three-CD collections feature audiences' best-loved selections from National Public Radio's Selected Shorts, an award-winning series of classic and contemporary short fiction read by acclaimed actors and recorded live at Peter Norton Symphony Space in New York City. More than three hours of recordings in each collection capture the intimacy of live performance. Stories are alternately funny, sad, moving, and exciting and make a perfect accompaniment to daily activities such as driving, cooking, exercising, and relaxing.

Fictions for our Times: Listener Favorites Old and New includes, among others, Thomas Meehan's "Yma Dream," read by Christine Baranski; Toni Cade Bambara's "Gorilla, My Love," read by Hattie Winston; Percival Everett's "The Fix," read by Isaiah Sheffer; Richard Bausch's "Valor," read by William Hurt; and Alice McDermott's "Enough," read by Kathleen Chalfant.
