Unexpected endings make for a better story.

In Italo Calvino’s satirical fantasy, “A General in the Library” a military tribunal investigates seditious books. Selected Shorts’ late host and founder Isaiah Sheffer is the reader. Old friends reunite—and revisit their shared past—in Edith Wharton’s “Roman Fever,” performed by Bebe Neuwirth.
