Only just discovered: The Telegraph offers a podcast of one chapter a day of Alexander McCall Smith’s first online novel:
“Corduroy Mansions” by Alexander McCall Smith.
I listened to Chapter 14: The Names of Dogs, read by Andrew Sachs, and I quite enjoyed it. He has a pleasant voice which transports the little ironies in McCall Smith’s text very nicely. It’s impossible to say of course whether the whole novel would convince me more than “Portuguese Irregular Verbs”, which I read a couple of weeks ago (and wrote about in the Tulgey Wood), but one has to give the author credit for this way of publication.
Certainly a kind of “easy listening” treat for advanced students.
