Item description for Selected Shorts: Wondrous Women (Selected Shorts: A Celebration of the Short Story) by Symphony Space ...

Presents a collection of short stories celebrating women.

Publishers Description
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.

Strong female protagonists grace this collection of passionate stories dedicated to mothers, daughters, wives, and lovers. A woman splurges on an irresistible coat that becomes her and transforms her; a feisty teenager who has grown up as her activist mother's poster-child realizes the strength of her own convictions; and a young peasant woman saved from drowning is suddenly drawn to her rescuer and hopeful about her life. Features stories including Kim Edwards' “The Story of My Life” read by Holly Hunter, Teolinda Gersào's “The Red Fox Fur Coat" translated by Margaret Jull Costa and read by Kathleen Chalfant, Allan Gurganus' "It Had Wings" read by Marian Seldes, David Haynes' "Taking Miss Kezee to the Polls" read by Michael Genet, D. H. Lawrence's “The Horse Dealer's Daughter” read by Jon DeVries, and Richard Russo's "The Whore's Child" read by Harold Gould.
