Audio at New Yorker Fiction podcast Oct 1st 2022
I just listened to Yōko Ogawa's story The Cafeteria in the Evening and a Pool in the Rain on the New Yorker Fiction Podcast Oct 1st 2022 . The podcast audio is read by Madelaine Thien.
For me here voice took a little getting used to, I found it too soft,
airy, and had to grind my teeth a bit, but I persevered and acclimatized
enough to enjoy the story. What was excellent was the discussion Thien
and the podcast host Deborah Treisman had about the story afterwards. One to recommend I think.
