Not How I Imagined It: Holiday Special

Email a Friend
Guest host Robert Sean Leonard presents four holiday tales--two merry, and two a little melancholy.  First, David Rakoff's account of playing the father of psychoanalysis in a department store window.  His "Christmas Freud" is read by Jon Glaser.  Next, a middle-aged woman awaits a new love, in Edna O'Brien's "Violets," read by Fionnula Flanagan.  A young man returns in William Maxwell's "Homecoming," read by Keir Dullea.  And Calvin Trillin wants to get out of town in his ditty "Christmas in Qatar," which he reads himself.
