Summary: 'The man in the Metro': A violinist, lost amongst the corridors of the Paris Metro. The anonymous face vanishes without trace from his customary position at the Opera Station. On the trail of his missing identity is Anna Mortley, a young Australian woman living in Paris, assisted by her mother, the producer.

Acoustic artwork broadcast on ABC Radio National's Sunday Night program, 19 September 2004. CD also includes a reading of the short story of the week.

Summary: 'The silver umbrella': Losing, searching, not always wanting to find what we thought we were looking for. Producer Natalie Kestecher takes a story of a lost suitcase containing Hemingway's unpublished works, and entwines it with the story of her father's lost childhood and a silver umbrella, speculating on the nature of loss and on why we sometimes go searching for things that we don't really want to find. With Nicholas Delbanco, reading from his novella 'The Lost Suitcase: Reflections on the Literary Life', published by Columbia University Press.
