24. Kate Chopin. "The 'Cadian Ball" and "The Storm."

24.  Bruce & Steve discuss author Kate Chopin's short stories "At the 'Cadian Ball" and "The Storm." "The Storm" is a sequel to the other story, but was so controversial that it was not published during Chopin's lifetime or for many decades thereafter.  In these stories, Chopin gives us dancing, mosquitoes, a slap fight at church, trembling prairies, a love quadrangle, a cyclone, two marriages, adultery, a Louisiana thunderstorm, and shrimps.  You get all the spice of a great Louisiana gumbo with none of the calories.
