7/3/2012 Tuesday's Spoken Word


07/03/12  In recognition of our very hot summer, Charles reads "The Girls In Their Summer Dresses", a story taking place in Greenwich Village, about a couple in a very tenuous marriage.  The story is written by Irwin Shaw (1913-1984), a prolific screen writer, novelist and short story writer.  Beryl reads "You Make Me Mad"  by American writer Paul Theroux (1941-  ).  The story, a "tongue-in-cheek" version of a husband's desire to leave his marriage, using rather violent methods, takes place in Singapore.  Theroux, a writer of travel fiction and his own travels in the far east, began his journeys to distant lands in the Peace Corps.
