George Saunders: shedworker (part 2)

We've already talked about novelist George Saunders (Lincoln in the Bardo, A Swim in the Pond in the Rain) before on Shedworking, but now we're delighted that he's shared an image of his writing shed in Corralitos, California, for the first time. He talks about it on his substack page where he is also launching his new excellent-sounding Story Club programme. Here's a snippet about how he felt while writing A Swim in the Pond in the Rain:

I’d come flying/stumbling down at the end of the day from a little writing shed I have up on the hillside in Corralitos, California, feeling, not that I’d “taken a break from” the current difficulties, but that I’d, well, girded up my loins for a deeper, less fearful engagement with the world.

He also talks about it in an interesting interview with the Guardian
