If you’ve never heard of George Saunders, by the time you finish this sentence that malady will be remedied. But if you’ve never read George Saunders, you still have some work to do.
Might I humbly suggest his new book of short stories, Tenth of December? Yes, I might.
In fact, I’ll go so far as to say that this might be the best book of short stories I’ve ever read. Nothing and no one has ever reminded me so much of Kurt Vonnegut’s short work while also being totally original. I can’t remember the last time I was this excited about a book.
I’m not even going to get into it all. Go in blind and experience it. Please, run, don’t walk, and grab a copy of Tenth of December.
And it’s short, so no fussing about not having enough time!
