"George Saunders has been celebrated for his imaginative, observant, hilarious fiction. But in this first collection of essays, Saunders trains his lens on the real world, and shows that it too is brimming with strangeness - in the surreal opulence of Dubai, in the alleged self-denial of the Buddha Boy of Nepal (who has been meditating without food or water for months on end), and in the seemingly mundane transactions of everyday life."--BOOK JACKET.

This is terrific-valuable, sardonic insight on the art of writing and current Geo-politics!

Funnily good, seriously funny. Good satirical essays.
