White Lies

'“The portrayals of Jamaica’s Czechoslovak parents, her feisty mother and silent doctor father, and of the beauty and dangers of rural America are evocative and vivid, written with a light, bittersweet poignancy.” —The New York Times Book Review “White Lies is infused with a comic energy that accelerates toward a surprise ending.” —Hartford Courant “Salamon has created a wonderfully quirky and endearing heroine . . . but she has accomplished an even greater feat: Jamaica is both endearing and enduring. With White Lies, Salamon, who writes her story with exceptional style and readability, has not only given us a heroine about whom we genuinely care, but also is able to tell us something we didn’t already know. In fiction, that is a gift to be treasured.” —The Jewish Week “Julie Salamon’s humor sometimes slices to the bone . . . but for all her dark sides, Jamaica is an innocent, doing what she can to redeem herself and to save her corner of the world. And it’s to Salamon’s credit that she is able to suspend the happy talk—almost in mid-sentence at times—for deeply felt glimpses of a soul in turmoil, and then quickly recover her brisk and winning narrative pace.” —The Christian Science Monitor'
