The New Yorker Podcasts

I recently subscribed to The New Yorker Podcasts via iTunes. Each month the fiction editor Deborah Treisman meets with a contemporary author to talk about a short story of her/his choice. Mostly, the invited author also reads the story.

Treisman is a skillful conversant, and clearly an ardent fiction fan. She is well prepared for the rather short discussions. Although she lets the authors express their reasons behind their choices, Treisman smoothly introduces her own succint interpretations.

Listen for instance to her conversation with Aleksandar Hemon about B. Malamud’s “A List of Books.”

Visit the interviews section for an interview with Treisman from November 2005 issue of The Stranger.
