Saunders Reflects on Life After Winning the Man Booker Prize
What is life like after winning one of the world’s most prestigious literary awards? Arts and Sciences Professor George Saunders is just finding out, and was interviewed by the Sydney Morning Herald about the days following his Man Booker Prize victory, and where he’s going from here.
“This is the first time in my life that I haven’t had something at home mid-process when I went on the road. So it’s a little worrisome for me, because I don’t have something back there waiting for me,” he said. “But I also have this theory that I’ve been doing this awhile and there are certain habits that kick in just from sitting down in front of a computer.”
