This wonderfully funny collection of nine short stories is the perfect audio for quick drives to work or strolls around the block with the dog. The selections--originally performed for Public Radio--cover a wide range of comic styles, but each performer exhibits an insightful understanding of his or her story and how to deliver it. Wyatt Cenac's matter-of-fact, tell-it-like-it-is voice as a condom in Simon Rich's "Unprotected" conjures hilarious images of a small child discovering the world. And Isaiah Sheffer uses a full range of lively voices to extract both the humor and the wisdom from David Schickler's "Wes Amerigo's Giant Fear." From bizarre to heartwarming, these gems deliver plenty of laughs. J.F. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2014]
