Hear Neal Stephenson, Willem Dafoe, and More Read Etgar Keret’s Suddenly, A Knock On The Door

Hear Neal Stephenson, Willem Dafoe, and More Read Etgar Keret’s Suddenly, A Knock On The DoorFrom our friends at Farrar, Straus and Giroux comes this preview of the audio version to Etgar Keret’s recently released story collection, Suddenly a Knock On the Door. (You can read more about the book’s Kilgore Trout-ishness here.)

They’ve slipped us a sample from the audio version, which comes out on April 10th, of SF giant Neal Stephenson reading “Septemer All Year Long,” a science fiction selection from the book. 

The voice cast for this collection is impressive and full of various authors and personalities reading a selected story. The full list includes Ira Glass, Miranda July, Michael Chabon, and many, many more. See below for the full roster.
