Listen to an Excerpt From B.J. Novak's <i>One More Thing</i>, Read By Alison Brie, Tunde Adebimpe

B.J. Novak, widely known for his role as Ryan Howard on The Office, recently published a short story collection called One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories.

One of the short stories in the collection, “Julie and the Warlord,” is a surrealist piece about the first date between a young woman and a warlord. It’s hilariously intriguing.

The piece was read for the radio show This American Life by Novak as the narrator, Alison Brie as the young woman and TV On The Radio vocalist Tunde Adebimpe as the warlord.
