Book Of The Week: Lincoln in The Bardo

///Book Of The Week: Lincoln in The Bardo

Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders

 

This story takes place over one night. President Lincoln, irreconcilably grieving the loss of his young son, visits the cemetery which is full of restless souls in the state of transition described by Buddhists as the Bardo. All are struggling with accepting the fact of death, and they all get up to a variety of antics to delay the moment of true passing. The result is terribly sad, but also terribly funny. This book is very cleverly written – I highly recommend it.
