One of the very best for 15+ years

I thought I’d long since left a review, but I guess not. Which is crazy, because this show has been part of my life since 2007. It has always been, and remains, a pretty much perfect show. It’s exactly what it says on the box, with great production values and a great host. It’s just a great premise for a show, well executed. If you like New Yorker fiction, this is a wonderful way to get more. If you like fiction at all, this is a wonderful way to hear classic stories, and learn more about fiction and writing. Thanks to the production team for making something that has genuinely enriched my life for many years!
