Dan Chaon

Dan Chaon came to the attention of many readers with his 2001 short story collection Among the Missing, which was a finalist for the National Book Award. These stories resonate with echoes of detective stories and ghost stories, mysteries and thrillers, themes which Chaon explored further in his two novels, You Remind Me of Me and Await Your Reply. His stories have appeared in TriQuarterly, Ploughshares, American Short Fiction, Crazyhorse, Ninth Letter, Mid-American Review and elsewhere, as well as being selected for Best American Short Stories. He has an earlier collection, Fitting Ends and Other Stories, and a new collection entitled Stay Awake is due out in 2012. He teaches writing at Oberlin College, where he is the Pauline M. Delaney Professor of Creative Writing. Visit him online at [2011]
