THE 2017 MAN BOOKER-SHORTLISTED AUTHOR OF LINCOLN IN THE BARDOIn his first collection, George Saunders' vision of our near future is as black and funny as you can get.

He takes us on a trip to the shopping malls and theme parks and enviromental hazards that lie just around the chronological corner, introducing us to a gang of misfits and losers struggling to survive in an increasingly haywire world.

Bizarre but familiar, fierce but always humane, these are stunningly original stories by a master of the form. 'Saunders is a morally passionate, serious writer, who perfectly expresses the madness of the times we live in.

He will be read long after these times have passed' Zadie Smith'He makes the all-but-impossible look effortless.

We're lucky to have him' Jonathan Franzen'There is no-one better, no-one more essential' Dave Eggers
