LISTEN: SELECTED SHORTS FEATURING TSR

Guest host Jane Curtin presents two stories about marriage. In "Any Number of Little Old Ladies," by Bruce Jay Friedman, a playwright uses his wife as a character and she's not thrilled. Blythe Danner and Maulik Pancholy read. Another marriage is at risk in Roxanna Robinson's "In Naples," a trip that forces one woman to confront her feelings about her husband. Betty Buckley performs this delicate story.

"Any Number of Little Old Ladies" by Bruce Jay Friedman first appeared in the Spring 2009 issue of TSR.

Despite the big names and New Yorker references, contributors include both established and emerging writers, making the journal an excellent place to see your work next to that of literary legends.
