This well-written, charmingly performed piece explores the intangible legacy left behind by one's parents. Manifested in a telephone number scribbled on top of The New York Times, memories of the narrator's father flood back, striking both personal and universal notes.
Written in the style of This American Life and recorded in a Selected Shorts-type atmosphere, this piece is touching and irresistible.
