As good a description of art as any...

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.
