Listened to BD Wong read Sherman Alexie's short story, "Breaking and Entering," on Selected Shorts at Symphony Space. Film editor and Spokane Indian, George Wilson, accidentally kills Elder Briggs, teenaged burglar. The story confronts racism, stereotypes, and politics. It is written in 1st person POV. Here is a PBS link to Alexie short biography.

The second part of the program was a conversation between Sherman Alexie and Rick Moody.
