Product Details


“With this volume, Jane Smiley ratifies her claim as one of her generation’s most eloquent chroniclers of ordinary familial love.”

The New York Times


“An extraordinary achievement. . . . Smiley’s stories lucidly explore the complexities of contemporary sexual and domestic life. The emotional and moral complexity that she uncovers in the characters of these resonant novellas confirms Jane Smiley’s singular talent.” —The Washington Post Book World


Ordinary Love & Good Will are unforgettable novellas, built on lucid characterizations and elegant prose. Jane Smiley accomplishes a dazzling feat–without so much as a flashy phrase.”

The Boston Globe
