Jennifer Egan gives Jean Thompson's Throw Like a Girl quite a lot of well-deserved love in her thoughtful review at the NYT. As can be expected, Egan says it far better than I. (However, I'll take credit for my out-on-the limb, early coverage.) I do hope the accumulation of praise results in you reading Thompon's latest. Yummy, yummy stuff. The stuff that proper beachy reading should resemble in spades.
