Lincoln in the Bardo

Hardcover 28.00 Winner of the 2017 Man Booker Prize

From the seed of historical truth that is the death of President Lincoln’s beloved eleven-year-old son Willie, George Saunders spins a “story of familial love and loss that breaks free of its realistic, historical framework into a supernatural realm … Willie Lincoln finds himself in a strange purgatory where ghosts mingle, gripe, commiserate, quarrel, and enact bizarre acts of penance. Within this transitional state–called, in the Tibetan tradition, the bardo–a monumental struggle erupts over young Willie’s soul”–Amazon.com.
