GUEST HOST: DENIS O'HARE

Outsiders

"Outsiders often have an insight that an insider doesn't quite have." Diane Abbott

Description

Guest host Denis O’Hare introduces two stories about outsiders. Just in time for back-to-school, a tutor finds her privileged teenage client mystifying in Kyle McCarthy’s “Ancient Rome,” read by Tavi Gevinson. In Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s “The Thing Around Your Neck,” a young Nigerian woman comes to America for the first time, and it’s not what she imagined. While discovering herself, she experiences both love and loss, a subject Adichie writes about in a recent essay in The New Yorker. The story is read by Condola Rashad.
