Hilarity, suspense, and high drama are offered up in the mix of tales of travel to locales familiar and exotic found on this three-CD compilation from National Public Radio's Selected Shorts. An award-winning series of classic and contemporary short fiction, the selections are read by distinguished stage and screen actors and recorded live at Peter Norton Symphony Space in New York City. Join a father and son on a sailing voyage that goes dangerously awry or retreat to a country estate with the most eccentric hosts imaginable. Featured are stories written by Nadine Gordimer, Joan Didion, and Ring Lardner, among others, and read by such actors as Joanne Woodward and Bradley Whitford.
"They aren't adventure travel by any means, but are light and funny and speak of little quirks and amusing occurrences." Written Road
