153: George Saunders (A SWIM IN A POND IN THE RAIN) & Leo Tolstoy’s MASTER AND MAN
Guess who zooms in this time? It’s George Saunders himself, certified MacArthur Genius, launching his new book about writing and Russian short story masters, A Swim in a Pond in the Rain: In Which Four Russians Give a Master Class on Writing, Reading, and Life. Christopher and Drew ask him about what teaching taught him about writing, how he keeps the world fresh, and what he’d like to do if he weren’t a writer, along with what a master Tolstoy was. Na Zdorovie!
