Tenth of December: Stories by George Saunders
Tenth of December: Stories

cthoop, March 20, 2013

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.
