recommended Book Tour podcast: Daniyal Mueenuddin and Justin Torres
In his interview with FWR, Cheuse recommended Mueenuddin's book as the best collection by a new writer he's read in years.
When Alan Cheuse spoke with FWR last month, he highly recommended Daniyal Mueenuddin’s story collection, In Other Rooms, Other Wonders, a book now teetering at the top of my “must-read” pile. In the meantime, we can all hear Mueenuddin read from his work via this NPR podcast from a recent Granta-sponsored event at McNally Jackson. Also on the bill is emerging writer Justin Torres (currently a student at the Iowa Writers Workshop, formerly a McNally Jackson employee), whose fiction has appeared in Tin House, Granta, and other magazines; here, he reads “Lessons,” a three-part story published in Granta 104: Fathers.
