Product Overview

If there are Jean Thompson characters, '' they''re us, and never have we been so articulate and worthy of compassion. These stories confirm that no one is beneath her interest, or beyond her sure and seemingly limitless reach.--David Sedaris.

"Thompson immerses readers in details and emotions so consuming and convincing that the inane vagaries of modern life can take on near mythic importance. This collection shows the confidence and power of a writer in her prime." (starred review)
"Wonderful work from a contemporary master of scrupulous observation, plain statement and unvarnished common sense."
"Thompson is an astute observer of the pitfalls of contemporary life, how it isolates and challenges, how it brings out one's worst and best. Her clear-eyed, thought-provoking stories highlight rare, precious moments of grace even as she wisely notes the human tendency toward selfishness, pettiness and general bad behavior."
"...Thompson populates her fiction with characters who...could hardly be more ordinary, more like the folks down the block....These sensible souls take such pride in their refusal to stray from the straight and narrow that they are utterly thrown off balance when their luck takes a precipitous turn for the worse....What's most admirable about Thompson's fiction is her unflagging patience with the flaws and limitations of these decent people."
