Reviews

A morally passionate, serious writer ... He will be read long after these times have passed -- ZADIE SMITH
An exquisite work from a writer whose reach is galactic * OPRAH QUARTERLY *
Saunders has revealed himself to be nothing less than an American Gogol: funny, pointed, full of nuance, and always writing with a moral heart. This, his first book of short fiction in nearly a decade, only cements the validity of such a point of view. The nine pieces here are smart and funny, speculative yet at the same time written on a human scale, narratives full of love and loss and longing and the necessity of trying to connect ... A tour de force collection that showcases all of Saunders' many skills * KIRKUS *
George Saunders makes you feel as though you are reading fiction for the first time -- KHALED HOSSEINI
What warm, kindhearted and radical writing. Such delicacy, such serious wit. I love it -- MAX PORTER
He makes the all-but-impossible look effortless. We're lucky to have him -- JONATHAN FRANZEN
A luminous feat of generosity and humanism -- COLSON WHITEHEAD
Saunders is a true original - restlessly inventive, yet deeply humane -- JENNIFER EGAN
Funny, poignant - in flashes, deeply moving - light as a feather and consistently weird -- HARI KUNZRU
