In a rare mixture of top-tier short stories and phenomenal acting, these live recordings breathe air into the fine art of storytelling. As part of the Selected Shorts series, the readings celebrate the short story as performance art. Auberjonois, Fionnula Flanagan and Isaiah Sheffer bring THE DEAD to life with refreshing humor, only to be outdone by John Shea's rendering of Will Weaver's work. And just when you think it can't get any better, Harold Gould provides a suitable finale with Richard Russo's funny and touching short. The final package is a work so fantastic the listener is left feeling dejected when it's over, but thrilled and eager that there is a whole series of recordings left to explore. H.L.S.
