The New Yorker caught up with author George Saunders at Syracuse University, where he teaches, to discuss his writing process. He talks about his different drafts and how he delves deeper to create three-dimensional characters. We also love when Saunders talks about enjoying the moments of not knowing where his next story will come from.
