Crosslink: Sorry Please Thank You by Charles Yu

Longtime readers of this blog may remember that I posted a glowing review of Charles Yu’s debut novel, How To Live Safely In A Science Fictional Universe some time ago. Well there’s more where that came from. Last year he released his second short story collection, Sorry Please Thank You and it blew me away. The tales range from conversations with selves in alternate universes to observations of zombies going late night shopping in mega-malls but the focus remains on the themes of loss, alienation and existential despair. Sounds grim but it’s a captivating and utterly beautiful read.
