Good Living by Aleksandar Hemon

Please select:

Performed by  Boyd Gaines

A story that narrates one day in the life of the young salesman with a strong Bosnian accent. This very short story condenses the portraits of a drunk, miserable priest, and an arrogant, handsome young man who wants to be an actor, through whom Hemon sketches in several strokes the life of an entire neighborhood.
