Guest host David Strathairn presents four works that teach us a few things: how to eat a bony South African fish, in Calvin Trillin's "Dissed Fish," which he reads himself. How to write a great term paper according to Kurt Vonnegut. His "assignment" is read by B.D. Wong. How to breakup with your girlfriend, in "The Breakup Ceremony," by Toure, read by Maulik Pancholy. And how to humiliate yourself in public--Seth Fried's "The Frenchman" is read by Tate Donovan.
