Charles Yu is not for everybody. I've read both How to Survive in a Science Fictional Universe and now Third Class Superhero, and his style can put people off. The relentless interiority of the voice, plus the experimentation with form and meta-narrative, is just too much for people looking for a more conventional immersion in character and plot. Yu's quirky yet insightful short stories go much deeper than they seem on the surface. The title story's main character, Moisture Man, longs to be a successful superhero but must deal with the ambiguity of talent, good and evil when all he can do is secrete a little extra moisture out his pores.

Heartbreaking and hilarious, Third Class Superhero marked the debut of an author who has been a PEN award finalist, and whose novel How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe was named one of Time’s best books of the year. The post-collegiate braininess of many of Yu’s stories is like the music of the Talking Heads, making the familiar seem off-kilter.
Smart, engaging and often deadpan funny.
