Nothing with Strings: NPR's Beloved Holiday Stories based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Nothing with Strings is a collection of short stories written by NPR contributor Bailey White. These beautiful little stories are about people who can see the magic and mystery in everyday life. Where some see an elderly lady whose mind is slipping, Bailey White conjures a Thanksgiving picnic with a mysterious dancing girl. From a replica of a 1909 Sears catalog comes a black carriage with red stripes and a black and white prancy pony, a rose queen is discovered in a nursing home, and a lady wakes to find Richard Nixon cooking scrambled eggs in her kitchen. Squint your eyes a little and allow the lines of reality to blur and who knows what you could find between the pages of this book?
