The foibles of the people in Jill McCorkles world are so familiar that we want nothing so much as to watch them walk intoand then get out oflifes inevitable traps. Here, in her first collection in eight years, McCorkle collects eleven brand-new stories bristling with her characteristic combination of wit and weight.

In honeymoon shoes, mud-covered hunting boots, or glass slippers, all of the women in these stories march to a place of new awareness, in one way or another, transforming their lives. They make mistakes, but they dont waste time hiding behind them. They move on. They are strong. And theyre funny, even when they are sad.

These stories are the work of a great storyteller who knows exactly howand whyto pair pain with laughter.
