Publisher's Summary

Legendary short story writer George Saunders joins Robin Morgan in the Audible Studios to talk about his long-awaited first novel, Lincoln in the Bardo. George has won decades of acclaim for his short-story collections (1996's CivilWarLand in Bad Decline, 2013's Tenth of December) that amplify the intricacies of American culture via the surreal and fantastical. He's a longtime contributor to The New Yorker and GQ and a professor at Syracuse. He's received Guggenheim and MacArthur fellowships and an Academy Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Lincoln in the Bardo is a novel which grew from the true story of the death of Willie Lincoln, the 11-year-old son of Abraham Lincoln, who died in 1862. Unfolding in a graveyard over the course of a single night, with a cast of dazzling voices, it's a literary experience unlike any other.
