9781934033173: Selected Shorts: Behaving Badly (Selected Shorts: Let Us Tell You a Story)

From powerful and moving to knee-knocking suspense and troubled love, these darkly comic tales of lives on the edge represent some of the best of recent seasons of the hit public radio series Selected Shorts. Michael Imperioli performs a thrilling Stephen King adventure tale with a chilling kicker. Anjelica Huston reads Aimee Bender’s moving story about the life of an artist and what he must sacrifice for his work. Jefferson Mays hilariously relates Nathan Englander’s tale of a pious man’s misadventures and his angst over trying to make his marriage a happier one. Christine Ebersole gives a madcap reading of a far-out fairy tale rewrite featuring the seven dwarves sharing a Soho loft and waiting to be saved from dereliction by Snow White. Harris Yulin performs George Saunders’ scary yet heartwarming story of a grandfather and grandson in a futuristic New York City in which consumer marketing has been taken to a dangerous extreme. With misdeeds covering a range of topics—drug use, vampires, kidnapping, and general mayhem—this assorted collection of memorable stories is sure to keep listeners rapt.
