Inhaltsangabe: With People Like You, Margaret Malone delivers an assemblage of characters and quandaries all at once funny, unsettling, subtle, and moving. Malone's people exist, like most of us, in the thick of everyday experience absent of epiphanies, and they are caught off-guard or cast adrift by personal impulses even while wide awake to their own imperfections. They win us over completely although we know they are bound to break our hearts with each confused and conflicted decision they make. Each of these stories is so beautifully controlled and alive to its own truth, readers will hardly know what hit them.

Rezension: ""Margaret Malone's stories are fearless and true. "People Like You" is a sharp debut that leaves the reader eager with want for all the books that follow the sharp debut." Kyle Minor, author, " Praying Drunk"

" A stunning debut . . . "People Like You" is full of people like us with all of our sorrows, fears, our wit and damage, and this debut collection deserves many, many readers and high praise! Lisa Glatt, author, " A Girl Becomes a Comma Like That"

" There are moments in Margaret Malone s collection "People Like You" when it s hard to breathe . . . whether it s a dying mother at a slot machine, a drinking pregnant mother stalking sex offenders, or a husband who s having his prostate checked every story is flawlessly told . . . Malone is a name that will soon be up there with the best and the brightest. Tom Spanbauer, author, "The Man Who Fell in Love with the Moon"

""Margaret Malone s masterfully constructed stories simmer with a dry, dark humor that reveals the truth of the human soul. People Like You makes good on the promise of its title, with characters who are fully formed heads and hearts and bodies struggling with loneliness, love (or lack thereof), and who and how to be in the modern world." Liz Prato, author, "Baby s On Fire"

""A powerful debut by a writer of immense talent . . . stories that shimmer and burn with beauty and sorrow, generosity and wit . . . I love this book beyond measure. Cheryl Strayed, author, " Wild"

"""People Like You" is wonderful on how much we need each other and let each other down, and how despite that and against all odds we grow into loving one another." Jim Shepard, author, " Like You d Understand, Anyway"

"""People Like You" will blow your mind, steal your heart, and leave your DNA rearranged . . . The biggest mouth-to-mouth resuscitation of storytelling I ve seen in years. Lidia Yuknavitch, author, " The Small Backs of Children"
