In this edition of the Granta Podcast we select some of the best readings of 2011, including Binyavanga Wainaina reading from his memoir One Day I Will Write About This Place, Robert Coovers reading of his online story ‘Vampire’ and Granta debut contributor Taiye Selasi’s reading of ‘The Sex Lives of African Girls’, from The F Word. After the readings stay tuned for some outtakes and extras, including an extract from a Liars League performance of New Voice Bilal Tanweer’s story ‘After That We Are Ignorant’, Lavinia Greenlaw reading her online poem ‘Saturday Night’ and Don DeLillo has an encounter with an unruly microphone.
