A Swim in the Pond in the Rain


Every month, Bookstonian picks a book we recommend to readers. This month's pick is A Swim in a Pond in the Rain by George Saunders.


George Saunders, a Syracuse University professor who teaches a class on the Russian short story, presents his inner thoughts of how great writing works and how the mind itself works while reading, and of how the reading and writing of stories make genuine connection possible.


Through Boz's Book Club, we highlight diverse genres, including classic books, fiction, young adult, children, nonfiction, and biographies.
