George Saunders, Live at Politics & Prose

The celebrated writer talks about his new book and what it’s like to be on Colbert.

Listen to author George Saunders talk about his new short-story collection Tenth of December, his writing process, what it’s like to be a guest on The Colbert Report, and much more:

George Saunders is having a good 2013 so far. The New York Times Magazine published a laudatory profile that called his new short-story collection, Tenth of December, “the best book you’ll read this year.” The book then debuted at No. 3 on the Times best-seller list. And last week, Saunders gave a fascinating and often hilarious talk and reading at Washington, D.C.’s Politics & Prose bookstore that you can hear above or through the Slate Daily Podcast.

Live at Politics & Prose is a new show from Slate Radio that will feature some of today’s best writers reading from their new work and answering audience questions at Washington, D.C.’s famous bookstore. You can subscribe for free through the Slate Daily Podcast in iTunes or with our RSS Feed to catch all upcoming episodes. (An individual feed for the series is coming soon.)
