secrets“At turns heartbreaking and hilarious, Jennifer D. Munro’s writing crackles with wit and hard-earned wisdom. Her prose is snappy and eloquent, and often laugh-out-loud funny about the most unfunny things—miscarriage, sex, loss of love, loss of self. Munro is one of those fine storytellers who conjures the universal in the particular, so you find yourself nodding along, saying, ‘Yes, that’s so it,’ even to things you’ve never experienced.”
Janna Cawrse Esarey, The Motion of the Ocean

San Francisco Chronicle
