Literature and Fiction
The breakout book from "the funniest writer in America"-not
to mention an official Genius-a trade paperback original and
his first nonfiction collection ever.
Saunders's first foray into nonfiction is comprised of
essays on literature, travel, and politics. At the core of
this unique collection are Saunders's travel essays based on
his trips to seek out the mysteries of the "Buddha Boy" of
Nepal; to attempt to indulge in the extravagant pleasures of
Dubai; and to join the exploits of the minutemen at the
Mexican border. Saunders expertly navigates the works of
Mark Twain, Kurt Vonnegut, and Esther Forbes, and leads the
reader across the rocky political landscape of modern
America. Emblazoned with his trademark wit and singular
vision, Saunders's endeavor into the art of the essay is
testament to his exceptional range and ability as a writer
