MacArthur genius and Booker Prize-winner George Saunders returns with a collection of short stories that make sense of our increasingly troubled world.

The nine stories in Liberation Day encompass joy and despair, oppression and revolution, bizarre fantasy and brutal reality.

‘Love Letter’ is a tender missive from grandfather to grandson during a dystopian political situation in the not-too-distant future. ‘Ghoul’ is set in a Hell-themed section of an underground amusement park in Colorado. In ‘Mother’s Day’, two women who loved the same man come to a reckoning in the middle of a hailstorm. And in ‘Elliott Spencer’, our 89-year-old protagonist finds himself brainwashed, a victim of a scheme in which people are reprogrammed and deployed as political protesters.

‘The only way to experience Saunders’s oblique, farcical, tragic world is to dive right in. It will take the top of your head off, but it’s worth it’ The Times
