Love & Prohibition



Guest host David Sedaris presents three stories about love and constraints. Jamaica Kincaid’s “Girl” conjures up a tough but loving mother in a humorous laundry list of dos and don’ts. She’s brought to life by Hattie Winston. George Saunders’ story title says it all: “Lars Farf, Excessively Fearful Husband and Father,” takes protectiveness to hilarious extremes. The reader is James Naughton. And in Carson McCullers’ “A Domestic Dilemma,” read by Joanna Gleason, a husband tries to cushion his family against the pain and disorder caused by his alcoholic wife.
