LINCOLN In The Bardo by George Saunders has been widely acclaimed. His unique approach to writing a novel certainly distinguishes this work.
The Bardo allows for the inclusion of multiple themes, characters and certainly Lincoln and son Willie. Frankly the book did not work for me although I am clearly an exception. Others call it a “Masterpiece,” “Profound, funny, vital,” “A twenty-first-century Twain.” I tried, I wanted to get there but couldn’t.
That said, who am I to critique Saunders. Give it a go, and see what you think.
