About Us is a novel by the American writer Chester Aaron set in 1930s Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

It tells the story of the Kahns, a Jewish family who run a small general store in the fictional village of Sundown, a coal patch in Butler County, Pennsylvania outside of Pittsburgh. The protagonist is Benny Kahn, age eight when the novel begins, and his coming-of-age is sketched against the backdrop of the events of Great Depression through World War II.
