From Thoreau to Kerouac, American literature has often depicted a quest for self-realisation and transcendence. In this course, we will consider how contemporary writers have continued this American tradition through an exploration of George Saunders’s Booker-winning novel Lincoln in the Bardo and Barbara Ehrenreich’s memoir Living with a Wild God.
