Reviews

Praise for George Saunders

"No one writes more powerfully than George Saunders about the lost, the unlucky, the disenfranchised."--Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

"A true artist charting hidden creative territory."--Colson Whitehead, The New York Times

"Saunders makes you feel as though you are reading fiction for the first time."--Khaled Hosseini

"One of the most gifted, wickedly entertaining story writers around."--New York Times Book Review

"Subversive, hilarious, and emotionally piercing: Few writers can encompass that range of adjectives, but Saunders is a true original--restlessly inventive, yet deeply humane."--Jennifer Egan

"The best short-story writer in English--not 'one of, ' not 'arguably, ' but the Best."--Mary Karr, Time

"Saunders is a gentle giant in American letters whose fiction frequently champions the downtrodden and satirizes a society rife with economic inequality."--The Wall Street Journal

"Nothing has been read its last rites more frequently than the American short story. George Saunders proves, yet again, to be the form's one-man defibrillator."--Harper's Magazine

"A master of contemporary fiction."--Kirkus Reviews
