In his highly anticipated first novel, National Book Award nominee George Saunders delivers a captivating tale about death, grief, and the power of familial love. Set at the dawn of the Civil War, Lincoln in the Bardo begins with President Lincoln’s son, Willie, falling ill and ultimately being laid to rest. Saunders charts the events of that evening, in which Willie finds himself in purgatory (what is known in Tibetan culture as the bardo). Saunders received the MacArthur Fellowship in 2006.
