Larger Than Life

GUEST HOST: JANE KACZMAREK

Larger Than Life

"(of a person) attracting special attention because of unusual and flamboyant appearance or behavior." - Oxford Dictionary

Description

Guest host Jane Kaczmarek presents two stories about characters who are a little larger than life. First, the story that inspired the Hollywood classic All About Eve, Mary Orr’s “The Wisdom of Eve,” performed by Stana Katic. Next, in Louise Erdrich’s powerful mother-daughter story “The Leap” a former trapeze artist pushes herself to the limit. It’s read by Elizabeth Reaser.
