Her first collection since Who Do You Love, a 1999 National Book Award Finalist and a David Sedaris favorite (he hand-sold over 5,000 copies on his own lecture tour), Throw Like a Girl takes a pithy, poignant look at the secret lives of women. Each story unfolds in the familiar, chaotic present, and feels profoundly universal. Elle magazine says, “[These stories] remind you of people in your own life — and make you feel like you know them just a little better.” Thompson reads the story, “Lost.”
