Selected Shorts

Since 1985, Symphony Space, a performing arts organization in New York City, has hosted Selected Shorts, an hour-long series of readings of short stories. These stories, which include works by classic writers as well as contemporary ones, are read by a variety of professional actors. Performances are then recorded and broadcasted by Public Radio International. Most episodes feature 3-4 stories that are linked by theme. For example, one recent episode, Animal Magnetism, presents three stories that feature animals in some way: Grace Paley's "The Pale Pink Roast"; Etgar Keret's "Breaking the Pig"; and Raymond Carver's "Jerry and Molly and Sam." Visitors can listen to the most recent episodes of Selected Shorts on this website or subscribe to the podcast on iTunes.
