An Alien and a Gentleman: Celebrating Leonard Nimoy

May 14th, 2015

Episode 37 of 115 episodes

This program celebrates the late Leonard Nimoy with two of his best readings. First Etgar Keret’s “Good Intentions,” in which a hardened hit man is hired to “whack” the only man who was ever kind to him. Then, Nimoy delivers a chilling performance of Evelyn Waugh’s “The Man Who Liked Dickens,” about an uncanny tribal chieftain who will do anything to insure an unending diet of Dickens novels.
