"Girls’ Poker Night is blithe, engaging, off-the-wall funny."
"Jill Davis’s Girls’ Poker Night is every man’s worst nightmare–a candid look at how the other half thinks and feels. Ruby Capote is a smart, neurotic, maddening heroine against whom very few male poker players would stand a chance. I certainly hope this is fiction.”"
-Jay McInerney, author of Bright Lights, Big City and Model Behavior
"Jill Davis has the voice of your very best friend–funny, irreverent, gossipy, deliciously nasty but always compassionate. Just pour yourself a drink, sit back, and listen to her rant hilariously about her journey to romance and maturity."
-Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Pilgrims and Stern Men
"Funny, fast-moving, and disarmingly honest, Girls’ Poker Night, to use a Hollywood construct, is an American Bridget Jones meets Sex and the City, with a soulful smidgen of Bright Lights, Big City."
-Mark O’Donnell, author of Getting Over Homer and Let Nothing You Dismay
"Ruby Capote, the sparkling jewel at the center of Jill A. Davis’s brilliant debut, is wise, witty, and achingly vulnerable in the tradition of the fabulous dames of screwball comedy. I loved her and you will too!"
-Adriana Trigiani, author of Big Stone Gap and Big Cherry Holler
"Jill Davis captures exactly what it feels like to be a single woman on the verge of falling in love; what it feels like to risk everything and cross the line from distrust to trust, from not believing to believing. Girls’ Poker Night is funny, sad, and full of perfect little truths. It’s one of those rare books that you read and think, I know that woman. She’s me."
-Laura Zigman, author of Animal Husbandry and Dating Big Bird
"Girls’ Poker Night is a smart, funny, and wonderfully grown-up novel."
-Susan Isaacs, author of Long Time No See and Lily White
