Stories about people taking history into their own hands. We hear from two men in two different wars. One is trying to make a difference in the current war in Iraq. The other is with the CIA at the very end of the Cold War.
- Arthur Phillips reads an abridged version of his short story "Wenceslas Square," which takes place in Czechoslovakia at the end of the Cold War. (31 minutes)
This story was first published in a collection of essays and fiction called Wild East: Stories from the Last Frontier. Arthur Phillips's new novel is called Angelica.
