From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Man Booker Prize-winning novel Lincoln in the Bardo and the story collection Tenth of December, a 2013 National Book Award Finalist for Fiction. Talking candy bars, baby geniuses, disappointed mothers, castrated dogs, interned teenagers, and moral fables--all in this hilarious and heartbreaking collection from an author hailed as the heir to Kurt Vonnegut and Thomas Pynchon.   "The first thing you ought to know is that Saunders is the funniest writer in America... [But] Saunders's laughs are a cover, a diversion, beneath which reside some profoundly serious intentions regarding the morality of how we live and hte power of love and immanent death to transform us into vastly better creatures... I can't think of another writer who would try to do what Saunders is doing, or anything close to it. This is an important book."--The Nation "Saunders is a hilarious, wicked, and pitch-perfect satirist of our times, of course, but for a satirist he has a whole lot of heart."--Esquire… (mere)

A collection of weird short stories, in the Vonnegut/PK Dick/etc sense. One of the main themes was high tech consumerism, repeated through many of them, but it wasn’t overly repetitive. I don’t know if anything is was truly exceptional but on average all of them were very good. ( )

Saunders carefully carves a world of obscurity, but when you step back from all the comical and technical language, he delivers some of the strongest comments on society today. ( )

George Saunders is amazing. Like a hybrid of Philip K Dick, Tao Lin, and Jennifer Egan. He perfectly executes stories that morph between pure absurdity and satire and then turn into some third state, something thrilling and engrossing and completely unique.
It's so rare that I find an author like this, but I'm filled with a strong urge to read everything he's ever written. ( )

Saunders makes me happy to own a set of working eyes. This isn't his best book, but it's a great book. ( )

Since his stories first appeared, George Saunders has been one of our most enjoyable writers. But the arrival of his latest collection, In Persuasion Nation, signals a new anxiety in his work, a painful concern about the violent distractions of our post-9/11 entertainment state. These misgivings have driven him to eschew the satisfactions of his previous fiction, in favor of more challenging experiments.
