Praise
"With these (July 7th and The Cheerleader)...McCorkle emerges as the most exciting young American writer of fiction to come along in years."
"'July 7th' is nearly flawless, true to life and constructed with a feather-light touch."
"In 'July 7th' Jill McCorkle triumphantly shows that it all CAN be written down. Even if her characters' identifying tics are repeated a little too often, the reader's chief reaction remains astonishment. How did she do it?"
"A mature depth and range accompany the youthful exuberance and good humor of her writing."
From the Publisher
