Were some things meant to last forever? This is a life, a marriage, a funeral procession, a walk through a past to ashes and passion. Its pathos is not without humor and its understanding is not without human frailty and misunderstanding. This is a riveting chronicle of a single day in one woman's life through which the reader experiences a lifetime of revelation. In Isabelle's Appetite, Jones serves up a universally compelling story about, Isabelle, a woman whose life suddenly goes into freefall, and it is food that becomes her anchor. Jones wields her pen with amazing clarity in the story of Isabelle s life and how she tries to make sense of her relationships in the many roles she lives and is expected to live as a woman -- with a smorgasbord of unlikely foods leading the twists and turns of the tale.

Jones, also the author of In Line at the Lost and Found, which placed as a National Association of Writers novel award; and two plays A Stitch in Time and The Usual Suspects -- both nationally distributed to NPR affiliates -- brings all her talent to this taut, moving novel and the result is a masterful mixture of wisdom and wit. Jones is the author of The Real Dirt on the American Dream: Home Ownership and Democracy under the pseudonym Adrianna Long; Write What You Know based on writing workshops she has developed and led since 1995, and A Garden of Weedin', a collection of art, essays and poetry. She also is editor and contributor to Women on a Wire, vol. 1 & 2.
