George Saunders' 'Tenth of December'Download audio (MP3)
Back when George Saunders was a geophysics graduate with dreams of being a writer, the faculty at Syracuse University's creative writing program decided to take a risk on him. They called him their "grand experiment." Today, George Saunders has multiple awards and a MacArthur "Genius" grant to his name, along with a new collection of short stories called "Tenth of December," which the New York Times called "the best book you'll read this year." We talk with George Saunders about crafting a short story and his unique characters.
