Jenny and the Jaws of Life by Jincy Willett

Book Description

Jincy Willett is the high priestess of dark comedy. The classic stories in this collection cut through every convention, every idea of normalcy, with empathy and fearless wit, undermining all the old ideas about the happy family, the good son, the dutiful mother. In Willett's world, perversity and tenderness walk hand in hand; there's laughter and funerals, ambivalence in the nursery, and redemption for the wicked. As David Sedaris writes in his foreword, "I'm prepared to wear a sandwich board for this book. I can't help myself. It' just too good."

Amy Falls Down by Jincy Willett Amy Falls Down, Paperback (August 2014)

The endearingly bitter writer, Amy Gallup has happily isolated herself from the world spending the last two decades teaching and reviewing - she's done a lot of thinking... but very little writing. On an unassuming morning, in her slippers, Amy trips in her backyard, goes head-over-heels, and into the side of a birdbath.

Writing Class by Jincy Willett Writing Class, Paperback (June 2009)

Amy Gallup teaches a writing class at the university. There's something different about this semester's class - and the clues begin with a scary phone call and obscene threats. Amy soon realises that one of her students is a very disturbed individual indeed. When a student is murdered, everyone becomes a suspect.
