Claire Messud Reads an Excerpt from “The Woman Upstairs”

Here’s the first chapter of  The Woman Upstairs, read by the author, Claire Messud.

As I never listen to audio books, I find it fascinating to hear an excerpt from a novel read out loud by the very person who has written this piece, who lets us see how it’s supposed to sound and feel. Or at least we know how the words felt and sounded for their creator during the writing process, and what she was trying to say.
