Descripción Random House Trade Paperbacks, 2014. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Praise for Tenth of December "The best book you''ll read this year." -- The New York Times Magazine "A feat of inventiveness . . . This eclectic collection never ceases to delight with its at times absurd, surreal, and darkly humorous look at very serious subjects. . . . George Saunders makes you feel as though you are reading fiction for the first time." --Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner "The best short-story writer in English--not ''one of,'' not ''arguably,'' but the Best." --Mary Karr, Time "A visceral and moving act of storytelling . . . No one writes more powerfully than George Saunders about the lost, the unlucky, the disenfranchised." --Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times "Saunders''s startling, dreamlike stories leave you feeling newly awakened to the world." -- People "It''s no exaggeration to say that short story master George Saunders helped change the trajectory of American fiction." -- The Wall Street Journal "An irresistible mix of humor and humanity . . . that will make you beam with unmitigated glee. [Grade:] A" -- Entertainment Weekly "Saunders captures the fragmented rhythms, disjointed sensory input, and wildly absurd realities of the twenty-first century experience like no other writer." -- The Boston Globe " Tenth of December shows George Saunders at his most 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, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of A Visit from the Goon Squad "George Saunders is a complete original, unlike anyone else, thank god--and yet still he manages to be the rightful heir to three other complete American originals--Barthelme (the lyricism, the playfulness), Vonnegut (the outrage, the wit, the scope), and Twain (the common sense, the exasperation). There is no author I recommend to people more often--for ten years I''ve urged George Saunders onto everyone and everyone. You want funny? Saunders is your man. You want emotional heft? Saunders again. You want stories that are actually about something--stories that again and again get to the meat of matters of life and death and justice and country? Saunders. There is no one better, no one more essential to our national sense of self and sanity." --Dave Eggers, author of A Hologram for the King Praise for George Saunders "Not since Twain has America produced a satirist this funny." --Zadie Smith "George Saunders makes the all-but-impossible look effortless. We''re lucky to have him." --Jonathan Franzen "An astoundingly tuned voice--graceful, dark, authentic, and funny--telling just the kinds of stories we need to get us through these times." --Thomas Pynchon "Saunders is a writer of arresting brilliance and originality, with a sure sense of his material and apparently inexhaustible resources of voice. . . . Scary, hilarious, and unforgettable." --Tobias Wolff "A multifaceted writer, very easy on the surface to pin down but incredibly difficult once you actually read him with any depth." --Joshua Ferris "Saunders''s satiric vision of America is dark and demented; it''s also ferocious and funny." --Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times "George Saunders is so funny and inventive he makes you love words and so wide-eyed wistful he talks you into loving people." --Sarah Vowell GEORGE SAUNDERS WAS NAMED ONE OF THE 100 MOST INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE IN THE WORLD BY TIME MAGAZINE From the Hardcover edition.

Descripción Random House Trade, United States, 2014. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 200 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY People The New York Times Magazine NPR Entertainment Weekly New York The Telegraph BuzzFeed Kirkus Reviews BookPage Shelf Awareness Includes an extended conversation with David Sedaris One of the most important and blazingly original writers of his generation, George Saunders is an undisputed master of the short story, and Tenth of December is his most honest, accessible, and moving collection yet. In the taut opener, Victory Lap, a boy witnesses the attempted abduction of the girl next door and is faced with a harrowing choice: Does he ignore what he sees, or override years of smothering advice from his parents and act? In Home, a combat-damaged soldier moves back in with his mother and struggles to reconcile the world he left with the one to which he has returned. And in the title story, a stunning meditation on imagination, memory, and loss, a middle-aged cancer patient walks into the woods to commit suicide, only to encounter a troubled young boy who, over the course of a fateful morning, gives the dying man a final chance to recall who he really is. A hapless, deluded owner of an antiques store; two mothers struggling to do the right thing; a teenage girl whose idealism is challenged by a brutal brush with reality; a man tormented by a series of pharmaceutical experiments that force him to lust, to love, to kill the unforgettable characters that populate the pages of Tenth of December are vividly and lovingly infused with Saunders s signature blend of exuberant prose, deep humanity, and stylistic innovation. Writing brilliantly and profoundly about class, sex, love, loss, work, despair, and war, Saunders cuts to the core of the contemporary experience. These stories take on the big questions and explore the fault lines of our own morality, delving into the questions of what makes us good and what makes us human. Unsettling, insightful, and hilarious, the stories in Tenth of December through their manic energy, their focus on what is redeemable in human beings, and their generosity of spirit not only entertain and delight; they fulfill Chekhov s dictum that art should prepare us for tenderness.
