Listened to the audiobook while cleaning the house. These two short stories are both gripping and lovely at the same time, and your attention won't wander (the risk one often runs when listening to a book in audio format.) If it does wander for a minute, you will definitely cue back to the beginning to catch every single word once you realize how good they are. And Meryl Streep's reading of "The Enormous Radio" is so fantastic I actually felt sorry for people who read this story in print instead of listening to her tell it.
