Selected Shorts: Saying Goodbye to David Rakoff

David Rakoff, who died on August 9th, was a much-beloved member of the SELECTED SHORTS company and family.  We wanted to do something to honor him this week.   This preview of his reading of Dave Eggers’ “Your Mother and I,” which will be featured in a forthcoming broadcast, shows his great sweetness and humor.  We miss him terribly. 

Guests:

David Rakoff
News, weather, Radiolab, Brian Lehrer and more.
