George Saunders on Jangly Sentences and the Intentional Fallacy

    Thanks for sharing that clip. Love Saunders, think he’s one of the best at work today, so it’s great to hear him discuss his approach here. And am a fan of Mr. Rose, too.

    Interesting. My standard for a piece of writing being done is, “It feels right.” Ask me, “Why does it feel right?” and I’ll shrug. Jangly is a good word for his sentences. Read “Victory Lap” last night and it was way too tense for reading right before I went to sleep.

      Yeah, it’s kind of a tense opener, definitely a page turner.
