Listening to Fiction

I want everyone to know about the New Yorker Fiction Podcast, which allows you to listen to a great writer talk about one of his or her favorite short stories, and also has the author read the story aloud. Some of my favorites have been Jorge Luis Borges’s “The Gospel According to St. Mark,” T.C. Boyle reading Tobias Wolff’s “One with a Bullet,” and Jumpha Lahiri reading William Trevor’s “A Day.” You can even subscribe to the podcast via iTunes and get it sent to you automatically every month. And be a dork like me and listen to the stories while you run! Happy listening…
