Braindead Megaphone

by George Saunders

In this, his first collection of essays, Saunders trains his eye on the real world rather than the fictional and reveals it to be brimming with wonderful, marvellous strangeness. As he faces a political and cultural reality saturated with lazy media, false promises, and political doublespeak, Saunders invokes the wisdom of American literary heroes Twain, Vonnegut, and Barthelme and inspires us to re-examine our assumptions about the world we live in, as we struggle to discover what is really there.

A collection of essays that explore everything from vacations in Dubai to oil drilling in Sumatra with the wit of a comedian and the consideration of an investigative journalist. "Vonnegut Sumatra" is my personal favorite.
