Satirist George Saunders speaking at the Brooklyn Academy of Music back in January:

He aims to “take his reader by the shirt and fling him; you send him 15 feet and you’re done. And I don’t think it’s in your power to control what he’s feeling as he’s flying through the air.”

I first heard of George Saunders when he was interviewed by Jesse Thorn at The Sound of Young America. I am now on a mission to find and read as much as I can.
