A Lack of Order in the Floating Object Room, by George Saunders

Saunders

George Saunders’s short story takes us back to the heyday of Generation X, with its obsession with “semi-disposable Swedish furniture”, “Safety Net-ism”, “recurving” and the “mid-twenties breakdown” that Douglas Coupland chronicled in his famous novel. Now I won’t pretend to understand what Saunders was trying to say in this tale, but somehow I suspect I would have “gotten it” back in 1986, when he first published it.

“This is an Employee Objective Assessment Evening.” Ha ha!!
