Stay Awake by Dan Chaon

Stay Awake by Dan ChaonTitle:  Stay Awake

Author:  Dan Chaon

Call #:  CHA

Dan Chaon is one of my favorite authors. He is just a great writer and although his style is always a bit dark and disturbing, these stories are especially so. Death, dying, dark secrets and desperation loom large. But I reiterate – WOW, what a writer.  It seems obvious that the death of his wife in 2008 from cancer has had a profound effect on his writing.
