George Saunders on Sunday

“If I’d kept living my life the same way, I’d have died earlier, I’d have died angrier.”

The “Tenth of December” is a recently published collection of short stories by former tech writer, George Saunders. On Sunday, he quoted Terry Eagleton, an English literary theorist and critic, “Capitalism plunders the sensuality of the body.”

This was in response to a statement that was attributed to him, “The absence of wealth creates an erosion of grace.”

And later, he added, “If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we should find in each man’s life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility” — Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
