Podcast: George Saunders

Posted by Maximum Fun on 5th October 2007

George Saunders‘ satirical fiction won him a prestigious MacArthur “Genius” grant in 2006. His new book, “The Brain-Dead Megaphone,” collects his recent non-fiction writing. I sat down with George for a live stage conversation about his life & work at the Beverly Hills Public Library Auditiorium. This is our first ever interview which includes a metaphor which begins, “If the brain can be said to have a sphincter…”

Don’t miss our first interview with George, which you can hear here. Also, stay tuned for more Saunders-iana next week, as we offer some of his works in audio form.
