The average American moves 11.7 times in his or her lifetime, but I’m willing to bet that number is much higher for New Yorkers. On April 7, Selected Shorts presents Apartments and Neighbors, an evening of tales from Raymond Carver, Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky and others about the mysterious, curious or just plain insane people we live close to.

The winner will be chosen on March 31, and the story will be posted to our blog on April 1.
