The perennially popular NPR series "Selected Shorts" provides a lush harvest of stories and gifted readers. The standout in this clutch of tales is "Part of the Story," read by Isaiah Sheffer. Rife with raw humor and pathos, this is the hilarious tale of a woman whose five adult children (by five different low-life fathers)--all given up for adoption as infants--track her down. Other pieces verge on the pretentious and mawkish, but there's a flavor for every taste on this three-CD set, recorded live at Symphony Space in New York City. D.J.B.
