Crash Diet: Stories by Jill McCorkle

Invigorating . . . Savagely effective . . . Displays the same wit and ironic compassion that gained so many fans for her novels. --The New York Times Book Review Modern stories for modern times, Crash Diet is at once brilliant and bitter, happy and heartbreaking. In eleven stories, acclaimed novelist Jill McCorkle tells the varied tales of todays southern women, the lives they end up leading, and the loves that distract them. Sandra knows that the best revenge is her ex-husbands credit card; Ruthie is stuck owning a motel that the highway has bypassed; Anna is a widow who goes to airports and looks in on other peoples lives; Bunny waits eagerly for her absent sisters postcards for advice on how to live. Stuck in the slow lane, gunning their motors, they are women living the real life, hoping things will get better, but surprised when they occasionally do.
