New York Times Notable Book author Charles Yu wrote the bestselling novel How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe. In his stunning, often humorous collection Sorry Please Thank You, Yu draws on pop culture and science to make incisive observations about society—and offer touching insight into the human condition. In two of Yu’s remarkable stories, he focuses on a big-box-store night-shift employee with girl trouble and a company that outsources grief for profit.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Each story in Sorry Please Thank You is staggeringly smart, and none feel like anything but entertainment.” 

    Boston Globe

  • “Yu’s voice, sensibility, and approach are unique, especially in the ways he wrings humor and pathos out of stripped-down syntax and seemingly passive protagonistsThe stories deliver more than their fair share of bitter laughs, philosophical conundrums and existential gut punches.”

    San Francisco Chronicle

  • “In his new collection, Charles Yu applies his trademark winking, pop-culture-infused, sci-fi mentality to a series of short stories…Clever and cutting.”


  • “An impressive sendup of contemporary life.”
