Details

Tenth of December by George Saunders was on every literary "best of 2013" list and received rave reviews from critics. It is a collection of short stories, not a novel and not linked stories, with common themes and a unique style. Link to Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0812984250/ref=nosim/joanprice-20).

Note from Joan: When I first picked up this book, I read 1-1/2 stories and put it down. I thought I hated it. Then I read a review that a friend and writing colleague wrote -- http://www.wickedlocal.com/x1433775207/NORTH-SHORE-BOOK-NOTES-Tenth-of-December-By-George-Saunders -- and thought I'd better give it another chance. I'm glad I did! This book will give us much food for discussion.
