Selected Shorts: What the Blind Can See

Sunday, June 17, 2012

This program features two stories in which houses figure, and represent more than just a domicile.  In Yasunari Kawabata’s “Household,” a husband takes his blind wife to “see”, so to speak, a possible house where they might live.  “To the blind, houses are alive,” she says.  All the Kawabata stories we have presented as part of SELECTED SHORTS are terse, short, haiku-like gems, and this one is no exception.  The reader is Fionnula Flanagan.
