Dan Chaon's short story collectionAmong the Missingmet with widespread acclaim on publication in the US, and was a finalist for the National Book Award.You Remind Me of Meis Chaon's first novel, and his first book to be published in the UK.

Chaon's achievement is to rescue his characters from oblivion and make their lives seen as real as our own
New York Times Book Review

The Bookseller

Hypnotic ... haunting ... A lovely, insinuating book with a special staying power
New York Times Book Review

Remarkable ... Chaon has written an apparently claustrophobic novel that feels paradoxically large, generous and, ultimately, quite moving
Washington Post

A remarkable debut novel that avoids grand statements but says plenty about America today ... Chaon's prose is precisely formulated and his observations of life are acute ... "You Remind Me of Me" is a beautifully written exploration of the emotional paths chosen by rootless people desperate to hold on
Literary Review

Mesmerising ... "You Remind Me of Me" imparts a deeply moving empathy for lives gone sorely awry, its eventual optimism arrived at carefully enough so as not to betray its appreciation of life's hardships
The Times

A heartbreakingly beautiful look at the architecture of thwarted desire and the rampant destruction that minor incidents can wreak upon the seemingly most ordinary of lives.
The Spectator

'Gritty, moving and memorable'
Daily Mail

'Dan Chaon explores fundamental questions of identity and belonging in a story that successfully negotiates the fine line between touching and slushy'
Guardian

Metro

'A remarkable first novel . . .Not only satisfying but devastating'
Editor's Choice, Entertainment Weekly

The Times

'A Chinese box of a novel, full of hidden pleasures and surprises'
Elizabeth McCracken, author of 'The Giant's House'

'Chaon's writing is quite simply wonderful...a really good novel'
Independent on Sunday
