Flightless Goose Author Returns to NPR

Flightless Goose Author Returns to NPR

A couple weeks back, Flightless Goose author Eric D. Goodman read from his novel in stories on Baltimore’s National Public Radio station. This was his third time reading his fiction on NPR. He read “The Silences” on WYPR’s The Signal.

The Signal is broadcast on 88.1 FM to about 20,000 listeners in the Baltimore-DC area. It airs at 12 noon and again at 7 p.m. and offers a tour of Baltimore's cultural landscape.

"The Silences" is a story from TRACKS, a novel in stories which takes place on a train traveling from Baltimore to Chicago. In the story, a young woman traveling with the love of her life imagines a grim future together, and she longs for him to prove her wrong.

Miss the broadcast or want to hear it again? Here’s the official podcast of the reading, music, train sound effects and all.

Enjoy “The Silences!”
