Finalist for the National Book Award, the bestselling and critically acclaimed story collection from one of our greatest living writers, MacArthur “genius grant” recipient and New Yorker contributor George Saunders, with new material for the paperback edition.

Hailed by the New York Times Magazine as “the best book you’ll read this year,” Tenth of December is a masterful, deeply felt collection that takes his literary powers to a new level. In a recent interview, when asked how he saw the role of the writer, Saunders said: “To me, the writer’s main job is to make the story unscroll in such a way that the reader is snared—she’s right there, seeing things happen and caring about them. And if you dedicate yourself to this job, the meanings more or less take care of themselves.” In Tenth of December, the reader is always right there, and the meanings are beautiful and profound and abundant. Taut, inventive, and often poignant, this is George Saunders at his absolute best: Tenth of December is a collection of stories and characters that add up to something deep, irreducible, and uniquely American.
