Specimen Days by Michael Cunningham--Audiobook Excerpt

Listen to this audiobook excerpt from Michael Cunningham's novel Specimen Days, narrated by Tony Award-winning actor Alan Cumming. In each section of Michael Cunningham's bold novel, his first since the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Hours, we encounter the same group of characters: a young boy, a man, and a woman. "In the Machine" is a ghost story that takes place at the height of the industrial revolution as human beings confront the alienating realities of the new machine age.
