A geophysics graduate, student of Buddhism, former slaughterhouse knuckle puller, and master of modern fiction, Man Booker Prize winner George Saunders defies easy categorisation on and off the page. In a meeting of intellects, George sits down with Paul Holdengräber, the revered interviewer who he has called “one of the most brilliant minds in America, or anywhere”. George shares insights into his life, craft, and genre-bending body of work that includes celebrated short story collections The Tenth of December, a Booker Prize–winning novel Lincoln in the Bardo and the darkly comic fable Fox 8.
