Moving On



Guest host Jane Curtin presents three stories about emotional transitions—what happens after divorce, or the death of a loved one? In our first, prankish story by Ron Carlson, lunch with an ex becomes an Olympic sport. The reader is Sean Astin. Tom Barbash’s thoughtful story “The Women” explores the very different ways a father and son cope with the loss of a wife and mother. Michael Imperioli is the reader. And we finish with an elegant classic by the French writer Colette, read by Barbara Barrie. A married couple encounters “The Other Wife” at lunch.
