Jean McGarry



Jean McGarryThe stories of Ocean State roll over the reader like a wave. Family pleasures, marriage, the essential moments and mysteries of a seemingly ordinary world that break into magical territory before we can brace omcgarry_coverurselves -- Jean McGarry puts us in life's rough seas with what the New York Times has called a "deft, comic, and devastatingly precise" hand.

From Kirkus Reviews: "McGarry's prose is fresh, her plots unpredictable, her dialogue wry."

Jean McGarry teaches in The Writing Seminars at Johns Hopkins University. Ocean State is her eighth book of fiction.
