Tenth of December

by George Saunders

Real life twists into wild flights of imagination in these short stories. The writing is stylistic and the author’s cleverness teeters towards being awkward at times, but I found the stories intriguing and, surprisingly, moving.


Soon, experiencing the benefits of the flowing Verbaluce™ in our drips, we were not only fucking really well but also talking pretty great. Like, instead of just saying the sex-type things we had been saying (such as 'wow' and 'oh God' and 'hell yes' and so forth), we now began freestyling re our sensations and thoughts, in elevated diction, with eighty-percent increased vocab, our well-articulated thoughts being recorded for later analysis.
