The disappointments of adult life, or what she called, “expectation fallacy”,《Waking Up in Dreams》is a collection of twenty-eight short stories by Taiwanese Canadian writer Coco Shen. These micro - sometimes nano - stories swing between sharp wit of Lydia Davis and melancholic humor of Lorrie Moore, a cutting yet poetic depiction of life’s living absurdity.
