Narrators Robin Miles and Dennis Boutsikaris lead a group of first-rate voice talents in delivering The Decameron Project, a collection of short stories centered on the COVID-19 pandemic. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Alan Minskoff discuss the New York Time Magazine‘s collection of contemporary North American authors including Margaret Atwood, Victor LaValle, and Dina Nayeri. They have published an astonishing array of fresh, personal, and immediate takes on a world taken hostage by a virus. One hopes this is just the beginning of a fresh, breathlessly affecting, and essential literary conversation.
