Praise For Throw Like a Girl…
"If there are 'Jean Thompson characters,' they're us, and never have we been so articulate and worthy of compassion. These stories concrm that no one is beneath her interest, or beyond her sure and seemingly limitless reach." -- David Sedaris
"Thompson is a writer of extraordinary intelligence and sensitivity." -- Vince Passaro, O, The Oprah Magazine
"Like Raymond Carver, Jean Thompson is fascinated by the sudden and unlikely communion of people. Her characters vary, but she never condescends to them, no matter how hungry their hearts are, no matter how many screws they have loose . . . Her fiction [is] a gold mine." -- Jeff Giles, Newsweek
