GUEST HOST: ROXANE GAY

Gay Roxane Bass

At a time of grand upheaval, Selected Shorts makes room for life’s minor insurrections.

Description

Guest host Roxane Gay presents three stories about resisting the inevitable and testing the status quo. The title tells all in Haruki Murakami’s “On Seeing the 100% Perfect Girl One Beautiful April Morning,” performed by Randall Park. A girl is tutored in the meticulous craft of fishing-fly tying by her father in Elizabeth Winthrop’s “The Golden Darters,” performed by Ann Dowd, and way before Harry Potter, a boy’s career choice confounds his wizard parents in “The Accountant,” by Robert Sheckley, performed by Nate Corddry.
