Sorry Please Thank You: Stories

Sorry Please Thank You: Stories - Charles Yu You know how it is when you stumble onto the work of a writer you’ve never read before and by the time your only pages into the book, you pretty much know you’ve committed yourself to picking up whatever else comes along from this author. That’s what smacked me upside the head when a couple of years ago I dove into Charles Yu’s debut novel, How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe. And now Charles Yu is back with Sorry Please Thank You, his second (after Third Class Superhero, 2006) collection of short stories, a mind-bending collection of speculative postmodernism that is worthy of your attention.
