Crowded World of Solitude

Crowded World of Solitude

Albert Russo is an international author making his second appearance on our show. Albert’s work crosses boundaries, be they the “real” ones of language, location, gender, race, or those less easily defined that separate the real from the surreal or the commonplace from the fabulous.

Albert read his highly amusing story New York Bonus on our show.
