There’s More to the Story



Guest host Maulik Pancholy presents four tales with unexpected twists and turns. We begin with his reading of “Riding Solo,” Simon Rich’s re-telling of the Paul Revere legend. An Italian holiday offers revelations to a group of tourists in Laura van den Berg’s “The Cult of Mary,” performed by Colby Minifie; Philip K. Dick’s “The Eyes Have It,” has a joke at the expense of a literal-minded reader; Paul Giamatti performs. And two masters meet in Carmen de Lavallade’s reading of Alice Walker’s mother-daughter(s) story “Everyday Use.”
