Tony, Emmy, and Golden Globe Award-winning actor John Lithgow (The Crown, Dexter, 3rd Rock from the Sun) brings his latest critically acclaimed Broadway performance to Audible. Stories by Heart celebrates the transcendent power of great literature and serves as a touching tribute to Lithgow’s late father, actor and director Arthur Lithgow.
In the performance, Lithgow intersperses memories from his own life between dramatic readings of two short stories (“The Haircut” by Ring Lardner and “Uncle Fred Flits By” by P. G. Wodehouse) from his own cherished childhood volume of Tellers of Tales. Following his performance, Lithgow performs a third short story from the anthology – “The Monkey’s Paw” by W. W. Jacobs – exclusively for Audible listeners.
“Haircut” by Ring Lardner is included by kind permission of the Estate of Ring Lardner. “Uncle Fred Flits By” by P. G. Wodehouse is included by kind permission of the Estate of P. G. Wodehouse and taken from his collection of short stories Young Men in Spats (1936).
