Going Away Shoes

The foibles of the people in Jill McCorkle s world are so familiar that we want nothing so much as to watch them walk into and then get out of life s 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 don t waste time hiding behind them. They move on. They are strong. And they re funny, even when they are sad. These stories are the work of a great storyteller who knows exactly how and why to pair pain with laughter. "
