hilariously funny, horribly sad, and utterly surprising If you can fight past an initial uncertainty about the identity of its narrators, you may find that its the best thing youve read in years This first novel by acclaimed short story writer and essayist George Saunders Tenth of December, The Brain Dead Megaphone will upend your expectations of what a novel should be Saunders has said that Lincoln in the Bardo began as a play, and that sense of a drama gradually revealing itself through disparate voices remains in the works final form The year is 1862 President Lincoln, already tormented by the knowledge that hes responsible for the deaths of thousands of young men on the battlefields of the Civil War, loses his beloved eleven year old son, Willie, to typhoid The plot begins after Willie is laid to rest in a cemetery near the White House, where, invisible to the living, ghosts linger, unwilling to relinquish this world for the next Their bantering conversation, much of it concerned with earthly and earthy pleasures, counterbalances Lincolns abject sorrow Saunders takes huge risks in this novel, and they pay off His writing is virtuosic and best of all, its highs and lows are profoundly entertaining You may hear echoes of Thornton Wilder, Beckett and even a little Chaucer, but Lincoln in the Bardo is peculiar and perfect unto itself Some advice dont try to read

patchwork of love and loss, giving shape to our foundational sorrows Vogue Saunders is the most humane American writer working today Harpers Magazine The novel beats with a present day urgencya nation at war with itself, the unbearable grief of a father who has lost a child, and a howling congregation of ghosts, as divided in death as in life, unwilling to move on Vanity Fair A brilliant, Buddhist reimagining of an American story of great loss and great love Saunders has written an unsentimental novel of Shakespearean proportions, gorgeously stuffed with tragic characters, bawdy humor,
