Going Away Shoes
by Jill McCorkle




Overview -
" A] remarkable collection . . . Bold and addictive, Going Away Shoes is a find." --People

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.
