Author Ursula K. LeGuin said, "There have been great societies that did not use the wheel, but there have been no societies that did not tell stories." The power of stories is one of the topics we explore in this episode of the Literary New England Radio Show as we speak with authors:
Audrey Magee on The Undertaking
Ellen Cooney on The Mountaintop School for Dogs and Other Second Chances
Tana French on The Secret Place
Susanna Kearsley on Season of Storms

On today’s show I discuss marriage. Who in the H.E. Double Hockey-Sticks is Ready for Marriage? NO ONE. The wedding and honeymoon are easy. It's when the kids are all throwing up, the dog has shit on your rug, the car won't start and your spouse just lost their job at that point marriage becomes difficult.
Here's the article that "stimulated" my thoughts on this topic!

After 24 rounds of boxing with Marcos Maidana, Floyd Mayweather is still the undisputed pound-for-pound champion.
Mayweather (47-0, 26 KOs) successfully defended his WBC and WBA Welterweight and WBC Super Welterweight World Championships with a unanimous 12-round decision victory in a rematch with Argentine slugger Maidana (35-5, 31 KOs) on Saturday in front of 16,144 fans at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, live on SHOWTIME PPV®.
“Money” strategically fought the fight that he wanted, effectively avoiding the looping punches against the ropes that “El Chino” was able to land in their first bout and pivoting back to his domain – the center of the ring.
The five-division world champion was decidedly more effective and efficient, landing 58 percent of his power punches compared to Maidana’s 26 percent. The 37-year-old also landed 43 percent of his jabs compared to 17 percent for Maidana and 51 percent of his total punches compared to Maidana’s 22 percent.
Unlike their first meeting in May – a majority decision for the 11-time world champion – there was no controversy in the judges’ decisions. Judge Guido Cavalleri had the fight 115-112 while Dave Moretti and John McKaie scored it 116-111. We will with out a shadow of a doubt be taking live calls on air from you the voice of the people.
