Selected Shorts: Episode 3: “Selected Shorts Gift Set: Strong Feelings”

David Sedaris introduces two stories about strong feelings. In Michael Cunningham’s powerful “White Angel,” the bond between two brothers is severed by a tragedy. Time is telescoped, and place looms large in this recounting through the eyes of a child of a moment that changed everything. James Naughton is the reader. Our second work is Bernard Cooper’s humorous tribute to exhalation, “The Fine Art of Sighing,” in which he ascribes his family’s sighing techniques to their characters. The reader is Selected Shorts’ late host and founder Isaiah Sheffer.
