George Saunders In Conversation with Sinéad Gleeson

Mon 13 Mar

Lincoln in the Bardo is the extraordinary first novel by George Saunders, an author best-known for his brilliantly sharp short stories. The American Civil War rages while President Lincoln’s beloved eleven-year-old son lies gravely ill. Soon after, Willie dies and is laid to rest in a Georgetown cemetery. Newspapers report that a grief-stricken Lincoln returns to the crypt several times to hold his boy’s body.
