The next shortlisted story in contention for this major award by established writers is If it Keeps on Raining by Jon McGregor. Early morning is the time when a man stands in his door way looking out at the river, reflecting on the traumatic experiences of his past, and his expectations for the future. Read by Ron Cook. Abridged by Richard Hamilton. Produced by Elizabeth Allard.
A link to a free podcast of the story will be available for download for two weeks after broadcast from the BBC Radio 4 website, where you can also watch previews of the other shortlisted stories and join the debate about this year's shortlist.
