Jean Thompson, heralded as "America's Alice Munro...one of
the best contemporary short-story writers" by Kirkus
Reviews, delivers twelve exquisite new stories that
combine her beloved trademarks of dark humor, seductively
sharp wit, and uncanny observations on human nature. Do
Not Deny Me is a fictional primer on how Americans live
day to day: Thompson's characters -- a middle manager in the
midst of midlife crisis, an urban single visiting her best
friend turned suburban mother, a grieving woman looking for
guidance -- are instantly recognizable in their
predicaments, foibles, and sensibilities.
wrought exploration of the myriad circumstances that
Americans are experiencing right now, this superlative
collection perfectly captures the joys and amusements,
trials and sorrows of its fictional inhabitants. Do Not
Deny Me should be savored, word by word.
