    • Tiny, But Mighty: Stories by Lydia Davis
    • Guest host Jane Curtin presents four stories by Lydia Davis, a master of short-form fiction in which real-life situations are subtly altered to produce the funny and strange. We hear “Can’t and Won’t,” “If at the Wedding (at the Zoo),” “The Party,” and “The Two Davises and the Rug,” read by Davis, Kaneza Schaal, Cristin Milioti, and Dylan Baker. The final story, “The Egg Race,” is by John Updike. In it, a high school reunion triggers memories and regrets. It’s read by Alec Baldwin.
