Listened to this being read by Hisham Matar on The New Yorker's Fiction Podcast. Didn't love it, I have to say. I didn't like the style, the story or the way it was partially open to interpretation and yet very specific in parts. I didn't find anything inspiring, surprising or thought-provoking. Perhaps it had something to do with Matar's reading, or his interpretation of the story afterwards, but I just didn't enjoy it at all. Pfft.
