The New Yorker Fiction Podcast

Each month, The New Yorker invites an author to select a short story from the magazine's extensive archive to read aloud for the Fiction Podcast. Fiction editor Deborah Treisman then conducts brief and illuminating interviews with each guest author to accompany these readings, allowing each guest a chance to explain their choice and discuss themes, characters, and literary devices employed in their selected story. Treisman's interview style allows listeners to get a glimpse into how each story personally resonated with each guest author and, at times, impacted their own work. In one recent episode, author and MacArthur Genius recipient Karen Russell reads and discusses Mavis Gallant's 1978 story "From the Fifteenth District." Other episodes feature Joseph O'Neill reading Muriel Spark; Ben Lerner reading John Berger; and Edwidge Danticat reading Jamaica Kincaid.
