The Podcasts

This week, Carole reads a wonderful short story by Bret Anthony Johnston called "Caiman." For those of you who live in colder climes, a caiman is a type of alligator found in Texas. He's a cold-blooded critter, but this story is anything but. On the subject of warmheartedness, the passing of much-loved Canadian writer Paul Quarrington prompts some reflections on a milestone birthday and the writing life. Some great books this week, dealing with curried sausage and prodigal sons (but not in the same novel). Send us your book picks; it's easy. Email Carole at cgian@carolegiangrande.com.

Carole's back at last with more good writing, great reads and the remains of a holiday cold. Still she rises above olfactory congestion to inquire about e-readers and the rich scent of old library books. This week's featured writer is Erika Rummel, author of eighteen nonfiction books and some short stories. Carole reads from her first novel, "Playing Naomi," a fascinating, page-turning tale about identities, real, imagined or re-invented. Some great reads from listeners, too - both modern history and historical fiction. Words To Go will now be heard bi-weekly, to give Carole a chance to do some writing of her own.
