Offering a mix of classic and contemporary fiction, this funny, sensual, delectable collection serves up literary morsels to please every food lover. Delicious tales about food and eating by authors such as M. F. K. Fisher, Anton Chekhov, and Damon Runyon, are read by distinguished actors such as Tony Roberts, Fionnula Flanagan, and Bradley Whitford. Many of the stories included in this three-CD collection were recorded at a Selected Shorts tour to the Getty Museum in Los Angeles in May of 2006.

About the Author:

Symphony Space is a performing arts center based in New York City that fosters artistically and culturally diverse performing arts, literary, and film programs that bring artists and audiences together in an atmosphere of exploration and intimacy. This organization reaches audiences throughout New York City, the wider metropolitan area, and--through distribution of programs via media such as radio, recordings, podcasts, and touring--the nation.

From AudioFile:

[Editor's Note: The following is a combined review with SELECTED SHORTS: TRAVEL TALES.]--Well-known actors read short stories in front of appreciative audiences at New York's Symphony Space in the long-running public radio series "Selected Shorts." Seasoned performers spurred to do their best by the combination of good writing and live audiences are irresistible. Thankfully, Symphony Space has been publishing anthologies culled from the broadcasts for some time. These two are unified by the themes of food and travel. Joanne Woodward, John Lithgow, Christina Pickles, and others read works by Chekhov, T.C. Boyle, Nadine Gordimer, and other authors, serious and comic. The humorous pieces are particularly enjoyable because of the palpable synergy between narrator and laughing audience. But all are enjoyable and satisfying. Y.R.
