really liked it
bookshelves: short-stuff, kiss-my-angst

My favorite short stories in the collection: "To Psychic Underworld" amd
"Long Delayed, Always Expected."
I enjoyed this set of short stories about the memorable, lonely and anxious characters--- Dan Chaon knows how to balance dry humor, subtle eloquence, and sadness. The feel is not on the same line as that of Chaon's suspenseful page-turner "Await Your Reply" but his shorts are arresting all the same.
