Haiti_dr This month’s New Yorker Out Loud pod cast series, which consists of a New Yorker fiction writer discussing a story from the magazine’s voluminous archives, features the gifted Haitian writer Edwidge Danticat conversing with The New Yorker fiction editor, Deborah Treisman, about talented Dominican writer Junot Díaz’s 1995 short story “How to Date a Brown Girl (Black Girl, White Girl, or Halfie). The pod cast includes a reading of the straight up hilarious story by Mr. Díaz. In addition, The New Yorker online has another very funny selection written by Díaz as well as a fascinating excerpt from Danticat’s forthcoming memoir and a short story she wrote in 1995.
