"[Soto's] well-drawn characters with their nuanced battles with grief and hope shine brighter. Haunting and complex."
"Adam Soto's ghost stories are mostly not literal—but they are haunting. There are so many tricks and feints here that you'll be working through Soto's cleverness days later. In this collection of tightly wound but diversely approached stories, Adam Soto unravels the sloppy, conflicted lives of his characters with precision and polish. Each work—some short, others longer—all find a way to compact the breadth of a novel within constraints of the short story. Concerning Those Who Have Fallen Asleep is less an anthology of stories, but an impressive and thrilling accumulation of small universes."
