And the Man Booker Prize 2017 winner is……

Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders

It may appear that George Saunders is the new kid on the block as he walks away with this years Man Booker Prize and while he is indeed a first time novelist, many readers are familiar with George Saunders already….

His short stories are dream to read and already he has a significant following with some glowing reviews.

“It’s tough to think of a living short-story writer – or even a dead one – who garners as much peer approval as George Saunders…” – San Francisco Chronicle

And my personal favourite…

“George Saunders — the beloved cult author known for surreal short stories about American nuttiness — is the master of joy bombs…” – Entertainment Weekly

Not just a short story writer George Saunders is a big advocate of kindness (as we all should be) and his foray into children’s writing with The Very Persistent Gappers of Frip  demonstrates his work on Kindness and Community.

If the name George Saunders doesn’t mean anything to you yet then you should definitely check out some of his other work.  He’s a satirist, a Sci-Fi writer, kindness advocate, oh and don’t forget the Manbooker Prize Winner of 2017!!!

To start you off here’s a round up of George Saunders books!
