The Underachiever

The Underachiever: Collected Stories 2000-2010 is available on Amazon - in paperback and Kindle! Most of these fifteen stories were published in various literary magazines -- and they center on ordinary working-class characters, feeling lost and stuck in their lives, and the spark that jolts them out of it.

Amazon reader J.D. Simon says: "Christopher Stanton’s The Underachiever is a remarkable collection of short stories about ordinary people who experience extraordinary events that change their lives. Each story will keep you spellbound until its ending. Stanton is a master storyteller and this book is a delight to read."
