“Kevin and the Lady” by Rosie Cutrer from The Blackthorn Walking Stick and Other Tales (9:45) Rosie Cutrer has been described as a “tour de force in storytelling”. She has been performing professionally for fifteen years. In this tale, she describes the life of a young man by the name of Kevin. While stuck in a job that he hates, trying to support his family on a meager wage, he still has the heart to be kind. His kindness, however, gets him fired. Depressed, he makes a deal with death in order to keep his family fed. When all seems lost, it is his original kindness that makes all the difference.
