Tom Barbash's superb debut collection of short stories, Stay Up With Me, has been lauded as an instant classic and featured in many ‘best of’ lists. Set mostly in New York City, these stories explore the different ways we try to connect with each other and the world around us. The characters in Stay Up With Me are deeply compelling and resonant, and their stories expose new truths - for themselves and the reader.
