Await Your Reply: A Novel

Await Your Reply - Dan Chaon Await Your Reply is a mesmerizing journey into the self. Can we reinvent ourselves and leave all traces of our former being behind? Three separate story lines impel us to find the connection between them. The writing is deft and the story urgent. There is a completed narrative on a simple level but to me the book is not about the plot but about our mistaken belief that who we think we are is as solid as we think it is. A funny thing--I had convinced myself that Miles and Hayden were one and the same. I'm still thinking about it.
