Richard Ford & Maile Meloy

This weekend on Selected Shorts, we’ll be featuring two great stories: “Going to the Dogs” by Richard Ford, from his collection Rock Springs, and “Liliana” from Maile Meloy’s  Both Ways is the Only Way I Want It. “Liliana” is performed by James Naughton, “Going to the Dogs” by our own Isaiah Sheffer. Maile Meloy joins us afterwards for an interview, where I ask her about this line from her story: “I tried to keep the neediness out of my voice, but it wasn’t neediness, it was need.” For your time/station, go here.
