friendlycitybks: Liberation Day by George Saunders - We firmly believe that full cast audiobooks are the best way to listen to short story collections, especially when they include talent like Tina Fey, Jenny Slate, Jack McBrayer, and Stephen Root.

nabeelqu: George Saunders’s description of how he edits his writing is striking: loosely, it’s a non-technical description of gradient descent, where the loss function is “the writer’s taste”.

MyNameIsEdChen: “What I regret most in my life are failures of kindness. Those moments when another human being was there, in front of me, suffering and I responded… sensibly. Reservedly. Mildly.” ― George Saunders

samjonesgo: I'm on the penultimate short story. I think it's definitely a book to buy and take in slowly rather than borrow and rush. George Saunders is digging the same vein he found when he wrote Pastoralia (themes of poverty, inequality, exploitation, revenge and disappointment).
