The Death of Ivan Ilych, P1

The Death of Ivan Ilych, P1

Today’s offering on THE SURGICAL FICTION PODCAST is my narration of Leo Tolstoy’s classic tale of a minor government functionary’s insightful tale of his own lingering death. Originally written in the latter quarter of the nineteenth century, The Death of Ivan Ilych is still universally considered one of the finest stories in all of literature.

Narrated by Edison McDaniels.

This work is in the public domain and is presented in two parts. This is Part One.
