2 Podcast Homepagepod 850X595 Search

On this program we're celebrating a giant of contemporary fiction, the novelist John Irving with readings by Yul Vazquez, Michael C. Hall, and Heather Burns.

Guest host Cynthia Nixon introduces readings from several of his novels, and Irving himself provides brief commentaries.


Orphans are cared for by a tough guy and a tough dog in "The Broken Side-view Mirror," read by Yul Vazquez. A teenager is smitten by a librarian in an excerpt from In One Person, read by Michael C. Hall. And a philandering children's book author entertains "Unhappy Mothers," in a reading by Heather Burns from A Widow for One Year.
