Reviews

"One of the best short story writers around . . . Dan Chaon's stories are funny, heartbreaking, beautifully written, and intelligently conceived."
-LORRIE MOORE
Author of Birds of America

"AN IMPORTANT COLLECTION OF STORIES, A GENUINELY LITERARY ACCOMPLISHMENT."
-HA JIN
National Book Award--winning author

"With a story like ['Big Me'] from the marvelous writer Dan Chaon, I am confronted not only with an unfathomable mystery such as that of the endurance of a single human identity over time, but also with new proof of the enduring value of telling tales in the ongoing struggle to understand those mysteries."
-MICHAEL CHABON
Pulitzer Prize-winning author of
The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay
