"MATTERS FAMILIAR--The Jewel of Genoa"
E. G. introduces and reads from the sixth (and his favorite) story in his collection, "Matters Familiar." You're 83, a retired cowgirl, and a shut-in since your beloved Earl died 15 years ago. Your best friend and fellow inmate at the home, Hattie, has taken a turn for the worse. Nothing in your life makes sense anymore. Where to turn? Pearl O. Mutter and her co-conspirators look East.
