Over the last ten years I've had a chance to give readings and talks all over the world and meet thousands of dedicated readers. Pero volviendo a la cita del principio, Saunders no se decidió a escribir A Swim in a Pond in the Rain porque sentía que podía ayudar a los escritores que empiezan, sino para capturar la magia de aquellas clases en las que, además de leer y comentar lo leído, una pregunta flotaba constantemente en el aire: ¿qué pueden hacer estos relatos por nosotros? He's been teaching this class for many years, and he finally decided to make the class public through this book. It's surprisingly engaging, especially on audio, with narrators like Nick Offerman, Rainn Wilson, Glenn Close, and Renee Elise Goldberry to read you the old stories.

He speaks of how these Russian masters spoke to their time, but also that their way isn’t the only way for fiction to work. Cada parte de A Swim in a Pond in the Rain se desarrolla, siguiendo una dinámica similar a las clases, alrededor de la lectura de un cuento.With his newest book, A Swim in a Pond in the Rain, Saunders pretty much publishes the MFA class on writing that he has taught at Syracuse for over twenty years. Good writing works in intricate relationship with a reader’s expectations, raising them and leading them on, then sidestepping or surpassing them.

It is a form uniquely situated to help us answer the big questions of life: “How are we supposed to be living down here?even if they converge finally on the same points of appreciation, and the same questions of meaning. Those unfamiliar with these authors and or Russian literature needn’t feel overwhelmed, Saunders breaks it all down, sharing his thoughts and showing what makes a story worth reading with undisguised joy. Each story becomes an exemplar of a certain issue that Saunders feels is essential in short story writing--looking at patterns in storytelling, finding the 'heart of the story', and so on. A Swim in a Pond in the Rain,” is drawn from the lectures Saunders delivers year after year to his graduate writing students at Syracuse University in his Russian Literature in Translation class. In each of the seven stories he dissects, Saunders walks us through their technique while giving us a generous helping of his own thoughts on life, literature and the way those two interact in our reading minds.
