Publisher's Summary

Winner: The Folio Prize 2014

From the undisputed master of the short story comes a dazzling and disturbing new collection. A family member recollects a backyard pole dressed for all occasions; Divisional Director Todd Birnie sends round a memo to employees he thinks need some inspiration; and in an auction of local celebrities Al Roosten hides his own internal monologue behind a winning smile. Although, as a young boy discovers, sometimes the voices fade and all you are left with is a frozen hill on a cold day in December...

What the Critics Say

"Saunders, as an American social and literary critic, may be shaping up as the Orwell of the millennium" (The TImes)

"He makes the all-but-impossible look effortless" (Jonathan Franzen)

"Not since Twain has America produced a satirist this funny with a prose style this fine" (Zadie Smith)

"There's something so wildly magnanimous about these stories that you want to force them on everyone you meet for the good of mankind" (Daily Telegraph)

    "Why?"
    What would have made Tenth of December better?

    Why is this audiobook, made up of short stories, downloaded as if it was a single file? No way of easily skipping to a particular short story! Very annoying.


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of George Saunders?

    Just about anyone else


    Any additional comments?

    Audible, why?
