Mary Gordon
Mary Gordon, acclaimed author of Pearl and Final Payments, reads from her new collection of short stories, The Stories of Mary Gordon.  According to one review: "Gordon is fascinated with deception and contradiction and, therefore, writes potent and stealthy short stories that carry within their holds incendiary stories-within-stories in this collection of 22 new and uncollected tales."
