With Dana Spiotta
Following the release of George Saunders’ last collection of short stories, Tenth of December, the New York Times Sunday Magazine cover story raved “George Saunders Has Written the Best Book You’ll Read This Year.” A MacArthur “genius,” Saunders returns to the JCCSF to discuss his first novel, Lincoln in the Bardo, an unforgettable story of familial love and loss that breaks free of its realistic, historical framework into a thrilling supernatural realm both hilarious and terrifying. In conversation with Dana Spiotta, author of Innocents and Others and Stone Arabia.
“The best short-story writer in English – not ‘one of,’ not ‘arguably,’ but the best.”
– Mary Karr, Time
