    "Alec Baldwin BECOMES this character"

    This is an expert reading of a B-plus short story by Julia Slavin entitled "Covered," about a middle-aged man who unwisely unearths his long-packed-away childhood security blanket during a midlife crisis, with hilariously disastrous consequences. Baldwin, the best possible narrator for this weirdly realistic surrealist fantasy, cannot be beat, although perhaps the editing could have been smoother (at several points you can hear papers rustling, as if he is literally turning pages). I recommend this only if you can buy it on sale (e.g., for $1.00-2.00), because it is very short.
