Beginning March 21, you’ll be able to hear the stories that appear in The New Yorker, read by their authors, on our new podcast, The Author’s Voice: New Fiction from The New Yorker.

First, you’ll hear Michael Cunningham reading his updated fairy tale “Little Man”; next will be Zadie Smith reading her story “Escape from New York”; and, finally, Tom Hanks reading his fiction piece “Alan Bean Plus Four.” If you like what you hear, don’t forget to subscribe to The Author’s Voice on your podcast app. Next week’s episode will feature Ian McEwan reading his latest story. We’ll be back here next month with a new episode of The New Yorker Fiction Podcast.
