In 1999, author Paul Auster invited listeners to submit stories to National Public Radio's "Weekend All Things Considered." Not just any stories-- they had to be true stories that were so amazing that they sounded like fiction. Now, many of the more than 5,000 stories submitted have been collected into a uniquely magical audiobook. His smoky baritone voice giving constancy to the wide-ranging tales, Auster paces his reading to let the stories surprise and move us. A couple brought together by the inspection sticker in the man's sport coat, a chicken that walks itself through Manhattan--improbable, hilarious, miraculous--these stories are the stuff of life.
