Long journey back from my home place in Mayo to Carlow today. So, Simon and I listened to a few podcasts from the New Yorker Fiction and Poetry podcasts. The poet John Ashbery was read by Meaghan O’ Rourke. Short stories were Edna O’Brien’s The Widow and Carver’s The Chef’s House.
Here’s the Edna link where Andrew O’ Hagan reads “The Widow” short story with analysis afterwards. http://www.newyorker.com/podcast/fiction/andrew-ohagan-reads-edna-obrien
