Sorry Please Thank You (Pantheon Books)

Skylight welcomes back Los Angeles author Charles Yu, author of How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe, to launch his new short story collection, Sorry Please Thank You.

Praise for How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe:
"Glittering layers of gorgeous and playful meta-science-fiction . . . A complex, brainy, genre-hopping joyride of a story [that is] smart and tragic enough to engage all regions of the brain and body." —The New York Times Book Review

“Compulsively rereadable . . . Hilarious." —Los Angeles Times

Charles Yu is the author of How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe. He received the National Book Foundation's 5 Under 35 Award for his story collection Third Class Superhero. He has also received the Sherwood Anderson Fiction Award.
