The New Yorker runs a free monthly podcast in which a short story from their archives  is chosen and read by an author whose work has also been published in the magazine. Aside from the pleasure of listening to these great stories, the authors discuss them with  The New Yorkers fiction editor, Deborah Treisman, often revealing deeper insight than reading alone would give. It is sometimes fascinating to hear the particular praises authors give to stories that have had a real impact on their lives and their work.

In the latest episode, Matthew Klam reads Charles D’Ambrosio’s The Point.

A particular favourite is Ben Marcus reading Kazuo Ishiguro’s A Village After Dark. Listen here.
