In Short is an online short story discussion group series led by our experienced reading group instructors.
George Saunders’s unique, acerbic, and experimental style showcases the boundlessness of prose through subtlety, humor, and risk in all methods of style, setting, and characterizations. Originally published in the New Yorker in 2011, “Home” is one of Saunders’s more “straight forward” stories delving into family dynamics, the idea versus the reality of home, presumptions & designations (by characters and by others), and the ways in which people hurt people–isn’t that what most stories are about? Group discussion will look at the author’s methods of showcasing family and character and pain through voice, linear structure, and building relationships on the page.
