Reviews

Praise for George Saunders and CivilWarLand in Bad Decline

"It's no exaggeration to say that short story master George Saunders helped change the trajectory of American fiction."--The Wall Street Journal

"Saunders's satiric vision of America is dark and demented; it's also ferocious and very funny."--Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

"Saunders makes the all-but-impossible look effortless."--Jonathan Franzen

"Not since Twain has America produced a satirist this funny."--Zadie Smith
