Fitting Ends is the first collection of fiction by the acclaimed author of the National Book Award finalist Among the Missing and now appears in this newly revised edition with two never before collected stories. Written before Among the Missing and originally published by Northwestern University Press, Fitting Ends features thirteen stories detailing the almost panicked angst of the American generation now approaching thirty. Struggling with gaps between youthful expectations and adult experiences, these characters long for understanding and acceptance& #8212 but are thwarted by failed love, family disruptions, numbing work, and sexual confusion. Chaon is one of the most promising new voices in fiction, and this re-issued collection offers further evidence of his unique talent. & #8220 The best of these stories . . . possess a rare, disorienting force. When you look up from them, the quality of light seems a little different. It& #8217 s a reminder to those of us who have almost forgotten what literature can sometimes do.& #8221 & #8212 Boston Book Review & #8220 The most honest, observant and timely book written this year about the American generation now approaching thirty . . . Chaon speaks with clarity of feeling, and more than a little oddball wit, about the lives of those left behind the demographic curve of America& #8212 men and woman with pointless jobs, doughy faces, soured relationships, bad credit. . . . Each story pulls you into its subtle emotional vortex, largely because of Chaon& #8217 s knack for simple but poignant detail.& #8221 & #8212 New York Newsday & #8220 Remarkable . . . Each story is a marvel of complexity, dense with meaning and nuance. . . . Very few first works are as solid, moving, and pitch-perfect as Chaon& #8217 s.& #8221 & #8212 The Cleveland Plain Dealer & #8220 [AN] OFTEN PERCEPTIVE, LUCID VOICE.& #8221 & #8212 The New York Times Book Review From the Trade Paperback edition.
