Robert Nathan was an author, poet, and playwright. You may know of some of his works, albeit from the ones that had been adapted to films. Nathan penned the original source material for “Portrait of Jennie” (1948) starring Joseph Cotton, and the seminal Christmas film “The Bishop’s Wife” (1947), with Cary Grant. In this episode, we’ll hear excerpts from one of Nathan’s novels featuring an elderly schoolmaster.
