A collection of short stories performed by narrators as diverse and vivid as the stories themselves. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Jonathan Smith discuss the magic of short stories. Every year the Best American Short Stories make for a vibrant collection, and hearing these stories on audio with perfectly paired narrators is a delight. Whether characters are living on the edge in America or trying to make sense of a dystopian world, the narrators’ performances make the stories come alive. Published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
