“Await Your Reply” by Dan Chaon
The lives of three strangers interconnect in unforeseen ways–and with unexpected consequences–in acclaimed author Dan Chaon’s gripping novel. Miles Cheshire longs to get on with his life, but he can’t stop searching for his troubled twin brother, Hayden, missing for ten years. Lucy Lattimore sneaks away from the small town of Pompey, Ohio, with her charismatic former history teacher, arriving in Nebraska, in the middle of nowhere, to figure out the next move on their path to a new life. Ryan Schuyler, after learning some shocking news, walks off the Northwestern University campus, hops on a bus, and breaks loose from his existence, which suddenly seems abstract and tenuous. "Await Your Reply" is a literary masterwork with the momentum of a thriller in which pasts are reinvented and the future is both seductively uncharted and perilously unmoored.
