Stay Awake: Stories

Stay Awake - Dan Chaon Creepy, edgy, just plain messed-up collection of short stories from the author of the fabulous AWAIT YOUR REPLY. If you were a fan of that novel you will enjoy this collection, filled with dysfunctional, haunted, sad, confused and unhappy people in unhappy situations. The first and last story are staggering; the rest vary between oh-kay and chilling. I really enjoyed the book and strongly recommend it to literary fiction readers or any reader looking for a good, smart scare.
