Tenth of December 1st Edition by George Saunders
Tenth of December 1st Edition

I'd been hearing the praise for George Saunders for years, and with the release of Tenth Of December I became a convert!

This collection of stories is fantastic. A look at some modern issues through such a unique lens, busting into the hilarious and absurd so quickly you can't help but wonder if you've missed a page or two. I know this phrase gets thrown a lot more than it should, but I am honestly of the opinion that Saunders has a voice unlike any other.

After finishing this book, I've devoured everything Saunders I could find, and he quickly has jumped the rungs of my favorite writer ladder almost overnight.
