About the Book

Fitting Ends

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 13 stories detailing the almost panicked angst of the American generation now approaching 30. Struggling with gaps between youthful expectations and adult experiences, these characters long for understanding and acceptance --- 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.
