One of our most precious literary resources—the simple and elegant short story—is alive and well in the sure hands of the producers of the Selected Shorts series. In this collection of seven engaging tales, both contemporary and classic, the subject is travel, not just from place to place but from hopes and dreams to heartache and back again. For example, in Dorothy Thomas's "The Getaway," a woman hooks up with a traveling man looking for a better life, but her young son brings her back to reality, and both are left to limp home. And so it goes. For each story a superb actor reads in a live performance setting that enhances the bittersweet humor and warmth of these little voyages into very American landscapes.
