Hope Davis introduces three fantasies in which things don’t go as planned. She reads Diane Cook’s “The Mast Year,” in which a lucky woman is besieged by the needy. “The Frog Prince” in Robert Coover’s story, read by Parker Posey, should have stayed in the pond, and a nasty teen keeps a “Mermaid in a Jar,” in Sheila Heti’s tale, read by Rita Wolf.
