John Lithgow's reading was absolutely amazing. He has such a way of drawing one in to a situation. When he spoke the parts from the old wife, he was so convincing. I actually cried in the end with his description of "the disappointing wails" of the old woman. Thank you so much for continuing to broadcast material such as this.
