Publisher Description

A New York Times Notable Book | San Francisco Chronical Best Book of the Year

A master of short fiction whose "best pieces are as good as it gets in contemporary fiction" (Newsday) returns, as Jean Thompson follows her National Book Award finalist collection Who Do You Love with Throw Like a Girl.


Here are twelve new stories that take dead aim at the secrets of womanhood, arcing from youth to experience. Each one of Thompson's indelible characters—lovers, wives, friends, and mothers—speaks her piece—wry, angry, hopeful—about the world and women's places in it.

This collection includes the following short stories:
“The Brat”
“The Five Senses”
“It Would Not Make Me Tremble to See Ten Thousand Fall”
“The Family Barcus”
“Lost”
“The Inside Passage”
“Holy Week”
“A Normal Life”
“Hunger”
“The Woman Taken in Adultery”
“Pie of the Month”
“Throw Like a Girl”
