In a few days, Willie dies and is buried in a Georgetown cemetery.Report of newspapers returning a grieving Lincoln to the crypt several times alone to contain his boy’s body.From this seed of historical truth, George Saunders turns an unforgettable story of family love and loss that liberates itself from realism, entering into an exciting, supernatural, hilarious and terrifying domain.Willie Lincoln finds himself trapped in a transitional Kingdom – called, in Tibetan tradition, the bardo – and that ghosts mingle, quarrel, scold and sympathize, and stony twists crawling towards the boy, a monumental struggle breaks out as young Willie’s soul unfolds.Lincoln in the Bardo, which takes place over a single night, is written with inimitable humour George Saunders, pathos and grace.Here, he invents an exciting new form and asserts himself as one of the most important and influential writers of his generation.Deploying a theatrical, kaleidoscopic panoply of voices – living and dead, historical and fictional – Lincoln in the Bardo poses a timeless question: how can we live and love when we know that everything we cherish must end?
