If you don’t already know about it, The New Yorker Fiction Podcast (iTunes – Feed – Web Site) features authors reading the works of other major authors. One of the latest and greatest examples: Orhan Pamuk, the 2006 winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, reading from Vladimir Nabokov’s “My Russian Education” (MP3 – iTunes – RSS Feed).
Within our collection of Free Audio Books, we have several other good reads from this series, including Paul Theroux reading Borges, Jeffrey Eugenides reading Harold Brodkey, Richard Ford reading John Cheever, and T. Coraghessan Boyle reading Tobias Wolff.
