Jean Thompson is a critically acclaimed novelist and short story writer. Her latest novel, The Humanity Project, is now available in paperback and her new short story collection, The Witch and Other Tales Re-Told, is now available in hardcover.
"One of the best contemporary short-story writers in peak form."
-- Kirkus Review
"If there are 'Jean Thompson characters,' they're us, and never have we been so articulate and worthy of compassion. These stories confirm that no one is beneath her interest, or beyond her sure and seemingly limitless reach."
-- David Sedaris
"Her stories linger and seep into your dreams."
-- Bernard Cooper, author of The Bill from My Father
