In Persuasion Nation - George Saunders

George Saunders possesses a truly original wit. These stories are way out-there, as usual, hovering somewhere between the hilarious and the nightmarish. Saunders delivers his critique of our media-saturated, pop-cultured lives in comedy-coated bits, which would be easy to swallow if the reader weren’t convulsing with laughter. His ability to parrot the all-nonsense conversational style of adolescents is absurdly funny, a skill that is surely enhanced by his experience as a professor. I suggest you read this collection back-to-front; the darkly comic Commcomm, which rounds out the book, was actually the first Saunders creation that I consumed. I’ve been ravenous ever since.
