To the Rescue

HOST: Meg Wolitzer


Host Meg Wolitzer presents three stories about characters who try to avoid trouble sometimes doing more harm than good. In Joe Meno’s “Animal Hospital,” a well-meaning father is surprised by his kids’ response to “let’s play doctor.” The reader is Becky Ann Baker, and an interview with Meno is featured in the show. In “The Silk Handkerchief,” by Sait Faik Abasiyanik, a thief and a night watchman have a moment of rapport. It’s read by Amir Arison. And Margaret Atwood’s recurring couple Tig and Nell try to stave off the inevitable by taking a “First Aid” class. The reader is Maggie Siff.
