« Matt Bell, "Rest Stop" | Main | Letter from Senator Barbara Boxer »

Hello, I'm Listening.

My iPod Mini birthday gift has turned me into even more of an obsessive than I was previously. And not just in terms of music. I've been rather pleased to discover how much the online literary world has embraced podcasting technology, in particular the reading of short stories and novel excerpts. I've just launched a new page, Listener’s Digest: Notable Literary Podcasts from Here and There, which will include the best readings I happen to come across. The first batch of links is as follows:

Leonard Michaels, “Murderers” (read by Shalom Auslander)
Gabriel Garcia Marquez, “A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings” (read by Miette)
George Ade, “The Fable of the Author Who Was Sorry of What He Did to Willie” (read by Ron Evry)
Matt Bell, “Rest Stop” (read by Matt Bell)
Henry Roth, “Call It Sleep” excerpt (read by Ron Cohen)

For further browsing enjoyment, check out the following short story podcast sites...

Thanks for the links. I tried one and I understand the obsession.
