About this title

Synopsis:

'Saunders is an astoundingly tuned voice - graceful, dark, authentic and funny - telling just the kind of stories we need to get us through these times' Thomas Pynchon In PASTORALIA elements of contemporary life are twisted, merged and amplified into a slightly skewed version of modern America. A couple live and work in a caveman theme-park, where speaking is an instantly punishable offence. A born loser attends a self-help seminar where he is encouraged to rid himself of all the people who are 'crapping in your oatmeal'. And a male exotic dancer and his family are terrorised by their decomposing aunt who visits them with a solemn message from beyond the grave. With an uncanny combination of deadpan naturalism and uproarious humour, George Saunders creates a world that is both indelibly original and yet hauntingly familiar

Product Description:

A compilation of a novella and short stories by writer George Saunders. The title novella follows the fortunes of two workers in the Neanderthal Man section of a rundown "History of Man" theme park, while another story centres on a lifeless old lady and her two delinquent life-worn nieces.

"About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.
