George Saunders is the writer that we need right now in the age of corporate greed and rising fascism. In what I opine to be Saunders' best collection, he imagines the world as a place of unfettered capitalism where the avoidance of watching commercials is punishable by law and where the biggest celebrities are the ones who test products made for the most marketable demographic. It is a world where going against the majority can literally result in your non-existence. Saunders' words have the tune of prophecy in them, and it seems that in reading his words, there is hope for us yet to avoid the troubling world he so eloquently writes about.
