Nothing is as it seems: a jilted lover dons robot armor to win back the heart of an ex-girlfriend; an angel loots the home of a single father; a teenager finds the key to everlasting life in a video game. In this much-anticipated debut, one of Chicago's most exciting young writers has crafted playful and empathic tales of misguided lonely hearts. Sparkling with humor and showcasing an array of styles, Hiding Out features characters dodging consequences while trying desperately to connect.

Praise for Hiding Out

There’s such freshness, naturalness, humor and charm to Jonathan Messinger’s stories—an overall sense of immediacy that planted me in the present—that only in retrospect did I realize how in Hiding Out, Messinger had also subtly constructed a personal and original world.
— Stuart Dybek
