    Summary

    From WBEZ Chicago, it's This American Life. I'm Ira Glass. Today on our radio program, we have three stories of people stepping from one world, the only world they’ve ever known, into an entirely new world. What happens when you open that door? What do you do with what you find, and -- when you look back -- how do you understand what you’ve left behind? Stay with us.

    Summary

    “We need you to be married,” Lamarque says.

    Pretend to be married,” Fantine clarifies. “Or pretend to be boyfriends, that’s fine too.”

    “It’s the living together that’s important.”

    Grantaire swallows. “I beg your pardon?”

    ---

    Or: the one where Enjolras and Grantaire are spies sent to a small village in the south of France to be undercover boyfriends.

    Summary

    The Barricades Rise tour starts in Ft. Lauderdale on one of those gorgeously mild days that only coastal Florida can produce. The sun is bright but the wind off the Atlantic is fresh and cooling. It’s not too humid, not too hot, especially as Grantaire takes the stage in the early evening. The sun is setting, wrapping the fairgrounds and the crowd in warm golden light. It’s damn near perfect.

    It’s also one of the worst days of Grantaire’s entire life.

    Probably the worst.

    Summary

    His eyes were dark and unreadable: there was only a faint ring of blue around the pupils. He stared at Steve down the gun barrel and muttered: "Are you really my friend?"
