Look Again

On this show, starry stories by writers Alice Walker and Ethan Canin performed by two of our favorite actors, Crystal Dickinson and David Strathairn.


Guest host Maulik Pancholy presents two stories in which young protagonists have their lives altered by acts of perception. A ten-year old girl takes a carefree walk in the woods in Alice Walker’s “The Flowers,” but the blossoms she finds conceal something darker. The reader is Crystal Dickinson. Ethan Canin’s “Star Food,” read by David Strathairn, is a coming-of-age story involving a boy at the edge of manhood, his parents, the family store--and the cosmos. We always like David for stories that need to take their time.
