Waiting On Wednesday #65: TENTH OF DECEMBER by George Saunders (Adult)

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by  Breaking the Spine. 

This is were we get to 'spotlight' books that we are anxiously waiting to be released! The ones that we are dying to get our hands on and read into the wee hours of the night and, quite possibly, to make our shelves look all pretty too :)

What I'm waiting on... 

by George Saunders
Expected release date: January 2nd, 2014
Published by: Bloomsbury Publishing
Genre: Adult


George Saunders’ most wryly hilarious and disturbing collection yet, Tenth of December illuminates human experience and explores figures lost in a labyrinth of troubling preoccupations. 
A family member recollects a backyard pole dressed for all occasions; 
Jeff faces horrifying ultimatums and the prospect of DarkenfloxxTM in some unusual drug trials; 
and Al Roosten hides his own internal monologue behind a winning smile that he hopes will make him popular. 

With dark visions of the future riffing against ghosts of the past and the ever-settling present, this collection sings with astonishing charm and intensity.
 Why I'm waiting for TENTH OF DECEMBER... 

First - the 10th of December is my birthday :) 

Second - it just sounds like something out of my comfort zone; very different. 
And I am looking to broaden my horizons, and start reading more adult books/novels in 2014 too. 

SO, what are you waiting for this week???
