Review:
"The dozen stories that make up IN PERSUASION NATION achieve a delicate balance between the grim and the funny, tipped in the end towards bliss."

Adam Begley, New York Times Book Review, 5/14/2006

Review:
"As in the novels of Thomas Pynchon...and David Foster Wallace, there is an exhilarating sense of a writer taking on a culture of deranged fictions--purveyed by government interests--by playing it at its own game and out-inventing it."

John Dugdale, Literary Review, July, 2006

Book Description: Riverhead Books, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 201 x 130 mm. Brand New Book. Talking candy bars, baby geniuses, disappointed mothers, castrated dogs, interned teenagers, and moral fables-all in this hilarious and heartbreaking collection. The best work yet from an author hailed as the heir to Kurt Vonnegut and Thomas Pynchon. The first thing you ought to know is that Saunders is the funniest writer in America. [But] Saunders s laughs are a cover, a diversion, beneath which reside some profoundly serious intentions regarding the morality of how we live and hte power of love and immanent death to transform us into vastly better creatures. I can t think of another writer who would try to do what Saunders is doing, or anything close to it. This is an important book. -- The Nation Saunders is a hilarious, wicked, and pitch-perfect satirist of our times, of course, but for a satirist he has a whole lot of heart. -- Esquire From the author of Tenth of December. .
