Guest host Hope Davis presents two coming-of-age stories that mingle memory, rebirth, and water.  Davis herself reads Elizabeth McCracken’s “It’s Not You,” in which a young woman checks into a grand hotel to cure a broken heart.   And from Isaac Babel, the Russian-Jewish author who wrote beguiling tales about the seamy side of early 20th century Odessa, comes "In the Basement.”  It has a familiar premise—the unlikely friendship between a poor boy and a rich one.  But Babel’s lush descriptions and comic energy make it remarkable.  The reader is Richard Masur.
