NPR Presents “Freedom” for September 11

It’s September 11. Baltimore’s NPR station (88.1 WYPR) presents my reading of “Freedom” from The Signal in a podcast.
"Freedom" is an abridged story from Tracks: A Novel in Stories. A soldier who grapples with war and love in the wake of September 11.
Here’s WYPR’s introduction: “Since 2007, fiction writer Eric D Goodman has joined us on the program with special radio adaptations from his novel-in-stories, Tracks. The book is an exploration into the private lives of train passengers, all strangers to each other, who happen to be sharing a ride from Baltimore to Chicago.  Over the years on this train, we’ve met a heartbroken girlfriend, a Holocaust survivor, a frustrated poet, and a computer hacker on the run from the mob.  In this installment, we enter the mind of a US soldier who’s fighting two very different battles – one overseas, and one back at home.”
