George Saunders - Tenth of December

Thursday, February 7, 2013 - 6:00pm
George Saunders discusses Tenth of December: Stories ($26.00). One of the most important and blazingly original writers of his generation, George Saunders is an undisputed master of the short story, and this new collection is his most honest, accessible, and moving work yet. Writing brilliantly and profoundly about class, sex, love, loss, work, despair, and war, Saunders cuts to the core of the contemporary experience. These stories take on the big questions and explore the fault lines of our own morality, delving into the questions of what makes us good and what makes us human.

MacArthur “Genius Grant” fellow George Saunders is the acclaimed author of several collections of short stories, including Pastoralia and CivilWarLand in Bad Decline, as well as a collection of essays and a book for children. He teaches in the creative writing program at Syracuse University.
