Tobias Wolff Reads Short Story 'Say Yes': Narrative Magazine (VIDEO)

Narrative Magazine's Friday Feature: "Say Yes" by Tobias Wolff

Each of Tobias Wolff's short stories is a tightly woven, tense drama ready for the stage. These stories have won numerous prestigious fiction awards, including the Rea Award and thrice the O. Henry Award, and have been performed to great acclaim by a San Francisco theater company, Word for Word, which transposed them for stage word for word, including tag lines, keeping the audience enthralled. In Wolff's reading of "Say Yes," this quiet domestic drama about the ubiquity of racial strife in suburban America becomes a subversive thriller in the vein of Edgar Allan Poe.
