Book Club: Liberation Day - Stories
Monthly meet up to discuss a great read, along with drinks & good company
This December we meet around George Saunders' latest collection of short stories. One that masterfully explores ideas of power, ethics, and justice and cuts to the very heart of what it means to live in community with fellow humans. Saunders' trademark prose — wickedly funny, unsentimental, and exquisitely tuned — challenges and surprises. This is a collection of prismatic, resonant stories that encompass joy and despair, oppression and revolution, bizarre fantasy and brutal reality.
