Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Each story in Sorry Please Thank You is staggeringly smart, and none feel like anything but entertainment.”  Boston Globe
“Yu’s voice, sensibility, and approach are unique, especially in the ways he wrings humor and pathos out of stripped-down syntax and seemingly passive protagonistsThe stories deliver more than their fair share of bitter laughs, philosophical conundrums and existential gut punches.” San Francisco Chronicle
“In his new collection, Charles Yu applies his trademark winking, pop-culture-infused, sci-fi mentality to a series of short stories…Clever and cutting.” Flavorwire
“An impressive sendup of contemporary life.”  Publishers Weekly
“Offers the reader plenty of thought-provoking topics to chew on. Each story is quite elegantly crafted to challenge the reader to think and think again about what makes us the imperfect, maddening, emotionally-wrecked people we are.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
