9781934033050: Selected Shorts: Are We There Yet? (Selected Shorts: A Celebration of the Short Story)

Recorded live at Peter Norton Symphony Space in New York City and at venues across the United States, these audio anthologies feature short stories from the Selected Shorts program that airs nationwide. More than 300,000 listeners tune in to this offering weekly to hear spellbinding tales read aloud by an assortment of terrific actors. A lot can happen on the way from one place to another, especially when an overnight flight makes for an unexpected romantic encounter between strangers seated together; South-of-France shenanigans ensue in an out-of-control automobile; and a bored, Midwestern housewife tries to escape to Kansas City. This anthology of tales about people in transit features Stuart Dybek's "Pet Milk" read by Keith Szarabajka, Martha Gellhorn's Miami New York” read by Joanna Gleason, Edward P. Jones' "An Orange Line Train to Ballston" read by Sonia Manzano, Annie Proulx's  The Trickle-Down Effect” read by James Naughton, Dorothy Thomas' The Getaway" read by Mia Dillon, James Thurber's "A Ride with Olympy" read by David Rakoff, and Eudora Welty's "No Place for You, My Love" read by Andrea Marcovicci.

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:

One of our most precious literary resources--the simple and elegant short story--is alive and well in the sure hands of the producers of the Selected Shorts series. In this collection of seven engaging tales, both contemporary and classic, the subject is travel, not just from place to place but from hopes and dreams to heartache and back again. For example, in Dorothy Thomas's "The Getaway," a woman hooks up with a traveling man looking for a better life, but her young son brings her back to reality, and both are left to limp home. And so it goes. For each story a superb actor reads in a live performance setting that enhances the bittersweet humor and warmth of these little voyages into very American landscapes.
