Lore Segal's The Reverse Bug

This story is is an exploration of the incomprehensible and the irreducible; subjects that are discussed at length, that tie philosophers in knots, that must be abstracted to be understood; genocide and pain. No answer lies within, but expertly, and astonishingly, Segal uses sound assault to crack the frail gloss of academic reasoning. We hear no screams, but there they are, and they assault us too. Bury it deep, so that we can talk about it.

This is read by Jennifer Egan and can be found in the New Yorker fiction audio.
