295: Not What I Signed Up For

Aug 26, 2005
Stories about being sucked into something against your will. In one story, a 9/11 widow finds herself having to comfort another distraught woman on national TV. And in a story by Nick Hornby, a boy is forced to play soccer to save his nation.
  • Marian Fontana's husband was a Brooklyn firefighter who was killed on September 11, 2001. Afterwards, she started an organization, fighting to keep her husband's fire station open, and to help victims' families. She talked to reporters about these things and made appearances on TV. So that's what she thought she was going to do when she agreed to go on a show she thought was called "E! Online." Marian Fontana's book is A Widow's Walk: A Memoir of 9/11.
