Very funny stories but I'd like to know some thing about the book. I hate these kind of interviews. But I guess that's the way entertainment works.

I loved it! If his writing is as good as this example of storytelling, I'm buying the book!

George Saunders is one of my favorite authors ever. Glad to finally see him speak. Thanks for putting this up so I didn't have to!

Hooray for George!

He wasn't that comfortable getting on stage. Sticking to storytelling really payed off.

His PastoraliaPatoralia is one of the only books that has ever made me laugh out loud.

Check out The Writers' Block, KQED Public Broadcasting's weekly podcast series featuring writers reading their latest works. This week, George Saunders reads "Manifesto" from The Braindead Megaphone.
