Too Hot For Radio: Tiphanie Yanique "The Special World"

Aparna Nancherla

Hampton Fluker

A gorgeous story about a young man who experiences the conflation of religion, race, and sexuality.


A gorgeous and striking story performed by actor Hampton Fluker (The Blind Side,Patriots Day, and Shades of Blue) about race, leaving home, and the dramas of young life. The story was chosen from The Best American Short Stories collection for 2020, which we celebrated at a special virtual night of Selected Shorts, because...2020. After the reading, host Aparna Nancherla talks with the delightful author Tiphanie Yanique about, well, just about everything. You won't want to miss it.
