“A wonderful collection of nine stories combining wry humor, engaging characters, and shrewd psychological insight… Witty, discerning, and laugh-out-loud funny.”
— Kirkus (Starred review)
How to Get Into Our House and Where We Keep the Money

Stories of women and men navigating the unpredictable path of love.

In a bizarre love triangle, a man becomes increasingly desperate for the attention of a woman obsessed with her little dog. A hapless unromantic develops an algorithm to help him succeed at dating. And a divorcee becomes consumed with jealousy when a man she likes begins to date her 60 year old mother. In these tales of love pursued, yet rarely caught, characters find themselves tripping, sometimes painfully, sometimes hilariously, toward self-revelation. Here is life in all of its clumsiness, humor, and beauty.   

A stunning collection... These characters inspire your compassion even as they beg for your forgiveness — and even as they make you laugh out loud. Few short stories, much less debut collections, arrive this compelling, this accomplished, this imaginative, and this wise.
— Robin Black, author of IF I LOVED YOU, I WOULD TELL YOU THIS
Panio Gianopoulos is the most natural of storytellers, who shows enormous range, mastery and feel for the short story. With echoes ranging from Updike to Murakami to Tom Perrotta, Gianopoulos announces himself as a terrific new voice for the form. This is one to read and savor.

An auspicious debut. In these smart and knowing stories, smart and knowing people come up against the limits of their knowingness and break through into a deeper humanity.
