In Marshboro, North Carolina, a murder at the Quik Pik just off the interstate remains unsolved. But two memorable women, a white widow and a black housekeeper, know that people learn to live by living with each other--in their ways and in their hearts.
From the Publisher:
An unsolved murder at the Quik Pik propels us into twenty-four hours of rich comedy and fast action in the North Carolina town of Marshboro. Two memorable presences are Granner Weeks, a white widow, and Fannie McNair, a black housekeeper. They know that people learn to live by living with each other--in each other's ways and in each other's hearts.In Marshboro, North Carolina, a murder at the Quik Pik just off the interstate remains unsolved.

Praise

Cleveland Plain Dealer
"With these (July 7th and The Cheerleader)...McCorkle emerges as the most exciting young American writer of fiction to come along in years."

Boston Review
"'July 7th' is nearly flawless, true to life and constructed with a feather-light touch." - Daniel Max February 1988

New York Times Book Review
"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?" - Anne Gottlieb 10/07/1996

San Francisco Chronicle
"A mature depth and range accompany the youthful exuberance and good humor of her writing."
