Dogs And Cats

Guest host Kate Burton presents four works about cats and dogs.


"Dog" is at the center of a family power play in Richard Russo's tale, read by Stephen Lang. Next, the English satirist Saki makes the fur fly in his classic tale of the talking cat "Tobermory" read by René Auberjonois. Our third work is a how-to guide to living like a cat, Helen Ellis's "Take it From Cats," voiced by Maria Dizzia. Finally, an eerie reversal of fortune in "Rosalyn's Dog," by Arthur Bradford, read by John Benjamin Hickey.
