One of America's most beloved short story writers, George Saunders, goes long with his highly anticipated first novel, “Lincoln in the Bardo.” Told through a collage of voices, this historical fiction takes place during the Civil War and follows President Abraham Lincoln into the spirit world in the midst of grief over the death of his young son. An American hero meets existential crisis.
