Every Friday Fiction Transmission brings you an audio version of a story from the FC2 archive, followed by a conversation between the author and a guest. This week’s story is “The Watermelon Body,” by Vi Khi Nao, from her collection A Brief Alphabet of Torture. It is read by Madeleine Lambert.

In the second part of the program, Vi is joined by Brian Evenson, author of over twenty books including most recently Song for the Unraveling of the World (Coffee House Press), as well as The Wavering Knife from FC2.
