Book of the Week: Tenth of December by George Saunders

Hailed by the New York Times as “the best book you’ll read this year,” this collection of short stories is thought-provoking, moving and often hilarious. Class, work, sex, love, loss, despair, death and war – nothing is off the table in Saunders’ searing look at contemporary life. A selection with Zoomer appeal is the book’s title story, where a 53-year-old cancer patient struggles with thoughts of ending his life on his own terms.
