Lincoln in the Bardo

$17.00

From the seed of historical truth that is the death of President Lincoln's beloved eleven-year-old son, Willie, George Saunders spins a story of familial love and loss that breaks free of its realistic, historical framework into a supernatural realm. Willie Lincoln finds himself in a strange purgatory where ghosts mingle, gripe, commiserate, quarral and enact bizarre acts of penance. Within this transitional state--called in the Tibetan tradition, the bardo--a monumental struggle erupts over Willie's young soul.
