George Saunders

As I am not a genius, I can’t know this for certain, but George Saunders might be the funniest person ever to win a MacArthur Genius Grant.

You know what I hate about blogging? (Besides the fact that it’s called blogging) According to surveys, 87.2% of blogs are just people blogging about other blogs. It’s like the web log equivalent of meta-fiction, and we all know how irritating meta-fiction is. So I apologize for the following.

George Saunders has a guest blog on Powell’s during his book tour for The Braindead Megaphone, and it’s a pretty good introduction to the man, the genius, and the sense of humor. I think the blog on Gitmo is the best (but again, being no genius, I cannot know this for sure).    -E. Scripsi
