WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Tony, Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winner Lithgow offers a touching and humorous reflection on storytelling as the tie that binds humanity in "Stories by Heart." In this piece he traces his roots as an actor and storyteller, interspersing his own stories with two classic short stories that were read to him when he was a child. Lithgow imparts the wonder and joy he felt when he first heard Wodehouse's "Uncle Fred Flits By" (1935), a funny story about a nephew taken on an afternoon's escapade by his mischievous uncle, and Lardner's "Haircut" (1925), a darkly comic tale told by the local barber about a small-town practical joker who gets his due.
