Summary
If Americans in the future were to try to send us a message about where our culture is heading, they might simply point to the fiction of George Saunders. Living in a world that's both indelibly original and hauntingly familiar, the characters in these stories bring to life our most absurd tendencies, and allow us to see ourselves in a shocking, uproariously funny new light
Summary
A collection of stories focuses on a somewhat skewed version of America and includes the midadventures of a male exotic dancer who is haunted by a departed maiden aunt and a self-help guru given to colorful metaphors
