Modern Fables

A fox and a swan come together in this podcast.

And writers George Saunders and Zadie Smith come together in the night they cohosted last fall which featured Fox 8. You can listen to their on-stage chat HERE.


Guest host Kirsten Vangsness presents two contemporary fables. First, Michael Cunningham reimagines the Hans Christian Andersen classic “A Wild Swan,” in a reading by Valorie Curry. Next, an excerpt from George Saunders’ touching and hilarious novella, Fox 8, read by John Cameron Mitchell.

Listen to an on-stage chat between George Saunders and Zadie Smith HERE.
