Saunders on Gothamist

George Saunders is interviewed over at Gothamist. Sample question/answer:

Have you ever lived in NYC? Where and when?

I’ve lived in NYC twice: 1) Two summers ago, courtesy of some dear friends, on the Upper East Side, who let us stay with them while our daughter attended the Barnard pre-college program; and 2) A few years from now, in the future, when I have become a wealthy doddering old fart/former writer, who can finally afford to live in NY, and who dodders from bookstore to bookstore, talking about the glory days and harrumphing out again when the bastards don’t have my books in stock.
