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.
