Tobias Wolff calls George Saunders “one of the most luminous spots of our literature for the past 20 years.” The publication of his fourth book of stories, Tenth of December, is cause for celebration. Saunders (CivilWarLand in Bad Decline, Pastoralia) is bizarre, funny, compassionate and outrageous. He sits down with Karen Russell, bestselling author of the exquisitely peculiar Swamplandia! and the darkly imaginative Vampires in the Lemon Grove, to talk about literary influences, fantastical landscapes, genre-defying fiction and whether there’s ever an idea that’s too far-fetched.

"George Saunders has written the best book you’ll read this year.”
– New York Times

"Vampires in the Lemon Grove is flawless and magnificent, and there's absolutely no living author quite like Karen Russell."
– Michael Schaub, NPR
