#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • WINNER OF THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE The long-awaited first novel from the author of Tenth of December: a moving and original father-son story featuring none other than Abraham Lincoln, as well as an unforgettable cast of supporting characters, living and dead, historical and invented One of Time’s Ten Best Novels of the Year • One of The Washington Post’s Ten Best Books of the Year • One of USA Today’s Ten Best Books of the Year • A New York Times Notable Book February 1862. The Civil War is less than one year old. The fighting has begun in earnest, and the nation has begun to realize it is in for a long, bloody struggle. Meanwhile, President Lincoln’s beloved eleven-year-old son, Willie, lies upstairs in the White House, gravely ill. In a matter of days, despite predictions of a recovery, Willie dies and is laid to rest in a Georgetown cemetery. “My poor boy, he was too good for this earth,” the president says at the time. “God has called him home.” Newspapers report that a grief-stricken Lincoln returns, alone, to the crypt several times to hold his boy’s body. From that seed of historical truth, George Saunders spins an unforgettable story of familial love and loss that breaks free of its realistic, historical framework into a supernatural realm both hilarious and terrifying. 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. Lincoln in the Bardo is an astonishing feat of imagination and a bold step forward from one of the most important and influential writers of his generation. Formally daring, generous in spirit, deeply concerned with matters of the heart, it is a testament to fiction’s ability to speak honestly and powerfully to the things that really matter to us. Saunders has invented a thrilling new form that deploys a kaleidoscopic, theatrical panorama of voices to ask a timeless, profound question: How do we live and love when we know that everything we love must end? “A luminous feat of generosity and humanism.”—Colson Whitehead, The New York Times Book Review “A masterpiece.”—Zadie Smith

Régóta várt regényével George Saunders, az amerikai irodalom nagymestere eddigi legeredetibb, legtranszcendensebb és legmegrendítőbb munkáját adja az Olvasó kezébe. A cselekmény egyetlen éjszaka alatt bontakozik ki egy temetőben, melyet egy káprázatos kórus hangjai beszélnek el: a Lincoln és a bardó olyan párját ritkító irodalmi kísérlet, amely csakis Saunders elméjében foganhatott meg. 1862 februárja. Épp csak kitört az amerikai polgárháború. A harcok most kezdenek igazán elmérgesedni, és az ország lakói lassan megértik: hosszú és véres küzdelem vár rájuk. Lincoln elnök tizenegy éves kisfia, Willie közben súlyos betegen fekszik a Fehér Ház egyik emeleti szobájában. Noha az orvosok azt jósolták, hogy felépül, Willie néhány nap leforgása alatt meghal és egy georgetowni temetőben helyezik nyugalomra. „Az én szegény kisfiam túl jó volt ennek a világnak – mondja az elnök ekkor. – Isten hazahívta.” Az újságok arról számolnak be, hogy a gyászoló Lincoln többször is visszatért egyedül a kriptához, hogy átölelje fia holttestét. George Saunders eme történelmi tény köré szövi feledhetetlen történetét a családi szeretetről és veszteségről, amely kitör a valós, történeti keretek közül és egy vidám, ugyanakkor rémisztő természetfeletti dimenzióban folytatódik tovább. Willie Lincoln igencsak fura purgatóriumban találja magát, ahol a szellemek összejárnak, panaszkodnak, átérzik egymás szenvedését, veszekednek és a legkülönfélébb bizarr módokon vezekelnek bűneikért. Ebben a köztes állapotban – amelyet a tibeti hagyomány bardónak nevez – rettenetes küzdelem veszi kezdetét a kis Willie lelkéért. A Lincoln és a bardó az emberi képzelet döbbenetes terméke, és igen bátor továbblépés a modern amerikai irodalom egyik legfontosabb és legbefolyásosabb alakjától. A merész forma, a nagyvonalú szellemiség, és a szív mélységeinek feltárása valóságos hitvallássá emelik ezt a művet, amelyben az író hitet tesz amellett, hogy a fikció képes őszintén és döbbenetes erővel megragadni olyan témákat, amelyek igazán fontosak számunkra. Saunders izgalmas új formát dolgoz ki, és ennek segítségével az élő és meghalt, a történelmi és kitalált személyek hangjának olyan kaleidoszkópikus, teátrális panorámáját közvetíti, melyben egyetlen időtlen, mély kérdés visszhangzik mindvégig: Hogyan éljünk és hogyan szeressünk, ha tudjuk, hogy minden, amit szeretünk, elmúlik egyszer?

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the novel Lincoln in the Bardo and the story collection Tenth of December, a 2013 National Book Award Finalist for Fiction. Hailed by Thomas Pynchon as "graceful, dark, authentic, and funny," George Saunders now surpasses his New York Times Notable Book, CivilWarLand in Bad Decline, with this bestselling collection of stories set against a warped, hilarious, and terrifyingly recognizable American landscape. One of Entertainment Weekly’s Ten Best Books of the Year "Artful and sophisicated... truly unusual. Imagine Lewis's Babbitt thrown into the backseat of a car going cross-country, driven by R. Crumb, Matt Groening, Lynda Barry, Harvey Pekar, or Spike Jonze." -- The New York Times "Saunders is a provocateur, a moralist, a zealot, a lefty, and a funny, funny writer, and the stories in Pastoralia delight. We're very luck to have them." -- Esquire

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the novel Lincoln in the Bardo and the story collection Tenth of December, a 2013 National Book Award Finalist for Fiction. In a profoundly strange country called Inner Horner, large enough for only one resident at a time, citizens waiting to enter the country fall under the rule of the power-hungry and tyrannical Phil, setting off a chain of injustice and mass hysteria. An Animal Farm for the 21st century, this is an incendiary political satire of unprecedented imagination, spiky humor, and cautionary appreciation for the hysteric in everyone. Over six years in the writing, and brilliantly and beautifully packaged, this novella is Saunders' first stand-alone, book-length work—and his first book for adults in five years.

Während des amerikanischen Bürgerkriegs stirbt Präsident Lincolns geliebter Sohn Willie mit elf Jahren. Laut Zeitungsberichten suchte der trauernde Vater allein das Grabmal auf, um seinen Sohn noch einmal in den Armen zu halten. Bei George Saunders wird daraus eine allumfassende Geschichte über Liebe und Verlust, wie sie origineller, faszinierender und grandioser nicht sein könnte. Im Laufe dieser Nacht, in der Abraham Lincoln von seinem Sohn Abschied nimmt, werden die Gespenster wach, die Geister der Toten auf dem Friedhof, aber auch die der Geschichte und der Literatur, reale wie erfundene, und mischen sich ein. Denn Willie Lincoln befindet sich im Zwischenreich zwischen Diesseits und Jenseits, in tibetischer Tradition Bardo genannt, und auf dem Friedhof in Georgetown entbrennt ein furioser Streit um die Seele des Jungen, ein vielstimmiger Chor, der in die eine große Frage mündet: Warum lieben wir überhaupt, wenn wir doch wissen, dass alles zu Ende gehen muss?

Talking candy bars, baby geniuses, disappointed mothers, castrated dogs, interned teenagers, and moral fables—all in this hilarious and heartbreaking collection from an author hailed as the heir to Kurt Vonnegut and Thomas Pynchon. "The first thing you ought to know is that Saunders is the funniest writer in America... [But] Saunders's laughs are a cover, a diversion, beneath which reside some profoundly serious intentions regarding the morality of how we live and hte power of love and immanent death to transform us into vastly better creatures... I can't think of another writer who would try to do what Saunders is doing, or anything close to it. This is an important book."—The Nation "Saunders is a hilarious, wicked, and pitch-perfect satirist of our times, of course, but for a satirist he has a whole lot of heart."—Esquire

Febbraio 1862, la Guerra civile è iniziata da un anno, e il presidente degli Stati Uniti, Abraham Lincoln, è alle prese con ciò che sta assumendo tutti i contorni di una catastrofe. Nel frattempo Willie, il figlio prediletto di undici anni, si ammala gravemente e muore. Verrà sepolto a Washington, nel cimitero di Georgetown. A partire da questa scheggia di verità storica – i giornali dell’epoca raccontano che Lincoln si recò nella cripta e aprì la bara per abbracciare il figlio morto – Saunders mette in scena un inedito Aldilà romanzesco popolato di anime in stallo. Il Bardo del titolo, un riferimento al Libro tibetano dei morti, allude al momento di passaggio in cui la coscienza è sospesa tra la morte e la prossima vita. È questo il limbo in cui si aggirano moltitudini di creature ancora troppo attaccate all’esistenza precedente, come Willie, che non riesce a separarsi dal padre, e il padre, che non riesce a separarsi dal figlio. Accompagnati da tre improbabili guide di ascendenza dantesca, assisteremo allo sconvolgimento prodotto nel mondo di queste anime perse dall’arrivo di Willie Lincoln, che è morto e non lo sa, e di suo padre, il presidente, che è come morto ma deve vivere per il bene del proprio paese. Sentiremo le voci – petulanti, nostalgiche, stizzose, accorate – degli spiriti e il controcanto della storia. Leggeremo nei pensieri di Lincoln e nella mente di suo figlio, uniti da un amore che trascende il dolore e il distacco fisico. Il romanzo si svolge in una sola notte, eppure abbraccia le epoche e arriva fino a noi, spaziando in un territorio dove tutto è possibile, dove la logica convive con l’assurdo, le vicende vere con quelle inventate, dove tragedia e farsa non sono due categorie distinte e separate ma un’unica realtà indifferenziata e contraddittoria, che proprio per questo appare spaventosa e viene negata. Come si può vivere, amare e compiere grandi imprese, sapendo che tutto finisce nel nulla? Probabilmente la risposta non esiste, ma Saunders affronta questo nucleo emotivo con tutta l’onestà e la partecipazione che può metterci uno scrittore alle prese con interrogativi così enormi.
