George Saunders is one of my favorite authors. In Age of Agility, I write about "modeling". If your goal includes fiction writing, George is definitely someone to model. His most recent book, Lincoln in the Bardo, won the 2017 Man Booker Prize for Fiction. His other books are Tenth of December, a Folio Prize winner, Pastoralia (my favorite), In Persuasion Nation, The Braindead Megaphone, and CivilWarLand in Bad Decline

Andrew J. Wilt is the author of Age of Agility, a book that addresses the skill gap between school and work. He can be reached at and on Twitter @andrewjwilt
