What unites this program’s two rather different stories is that both are tales of deepening insight, stories whose main characters undergo profound and life-altering experiences. The program begins with "The Seventh Man," by Japanese writer Haruki Murakami, and it starts with an old fashioned device: On a dark and stormy night, a group of men sit around a circle and tell their stories. The reader is John Shea. In our second tale, Aimee Bender’s "The Rememberer," the heroine’s lover undergoes a remarkable transformation that changes both their lives forever. The reader is Tony Award-winner Marian Seldes. A brief interview with Seldes follows the reading.
The literary sensation Haruki Murakami comes out with his new novel "1Q84" today. The surrealist plot has Aomame, a young woman, exploring the alternative-world Tokyo of 1984.
