On 22 February 1862, Willie Lincoln is laid to rest in a marble crypt in Georgetown. That very night, shattered by grief, Abraham Lincoln arrives at the cemetery, alone, under cover of darkness. Unfolding in the graveyard over a single night, narrated by a dazzling chorus of voices, Lincoln in the Bardo is a thrilling exploration of death, grief and love. It is a novel completely unlike anything you have read before, written as only George Saunders could do: with humour, pathos and grace. Winner of the Man Booker Prize 2017.
