Summary
NEW! New American Stories presents diverse stories of contemporary American life and dreams lost and found, by four of the best young, contemporary writers – Jhumpa Lahiri, Sherman Alexie, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and Aleksandar Hemon, as performed by terrific stage and screen actors. All four writers have a unique perspective on the American experience which is reflected in their work. Whether they are immigrants from another country, or in the case of Sherman Alexie, a Native American, they're all writing from a voice that comes from being an outsider. They also share a well-deserved, universal praise for their work.Aleksandar Hemon'sGood Living Performed by Boyd Gaines Jhumpa Lahiri'sHell-HeavenPerformed by Rita Wolf Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie'sThe Thing Around Your Neck Performed by Condola Rashad Sherman Alexie'sBreaking and Entering Performed by BD Wong NEW!
