    An elderly inventor, burning with manic creativity, tries to reconcile with his estranged gay son. A bereaved boy draws a thuggish classmate into a relationship of escalating guilt and violence. A genteel middle-aged woman, a longtime resident of a psychiatric hospital, becomes the confidante of a lovelorn teenaged volunteer. Told with Chekhovian restraint and compassion, and conveying both the sorrow of life and the courage with which people rise to meet it, You Are Not a Stranger Here is a triumph of storytelling.

    Prolific short story author Adam Haslett was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. His much-anticipated first novel, Union Atlantic brilliantly captures the me-first consumerism mentality of the early 21st century. Banker Doug Fanning begins building a massive mansion on land formerly owned by retired teacher Charlotte Graves' grandfather. The land was once donated to the local town, and now Charlotte is trying to stop Doug's construction efforts by any means necessary.

    Very funny and very pointed, Adam Haslet’s "Seibert", honored in the Best American Short Stories 2014, gets to the root of how technology—our personal obsession with it and its role in creating a society built on surveillance—disrupts our relationships with each other. Single in New York and connected to her smartphone, Sylvia has a problem living in reality. Or, rather, she lives in an alternate reality of constant scrolling headlines promising apocalypse and of friendships mediated through text messaging.
