Edith Pearlman
Edith Pearlman To fans of the short story, the name Edith Pearlman is already revered. Over the past four decades, the Brookline-based writer has published more than 250 stories, in magazines ranging from the Atlantic to Ecotone. Her work appears regularly in the Best American Short Story and O. Henry anthologies, and her three previous collections have garnered numerous awards. But it wasn't until last month's release of Binocular Vision, a collected on new and selected stories, that Pearlman burst into prominence. The collection was lavishly praised on the cover of the New York Times Book Review, and in the LA Times. Her work is now being compared to such masters of the form as Alice Munro, John Updike, and Deborah Eisenberg.

Wednesday, March 14, 2012       Listen 897

The Great Back Bay Blackout
After a smoky electrical transformer fire knocked out power to about 21,000 homes and businesses, sections of the neighborhood are getting back online. But problems are expected to persist into tonight. We’ll have the latest.

Guests:
  Garrett Quinn, WGBH contributor and author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com
  Meg Mainzer-Cohen, president of the Back Bay Association
  Marcia Gregg, a Back Bay resident who (along with her family) lost power (and still doesn’t have it)
  David Jacobs, publisher and editor The Boston Courant, covers Back Bay, South End Beacon Hill and Fenway

The Baffler Is Back
The self-described “journal that blunts the cutting edge” is back in print after a two-year hiatus. The Baffler’s latest issue of scathing media, political and cultural criticism hits newsstands tomorrow. And no cow is sacred. (Not even the one that pays its bills).

Guests:
  John Summers, editor of The Baffler
  Thomas Frank, journalist and author of books like What’s The Matter With Kansas? and most recently, Pity The Billionaire. Founding editor of The Baffler
