  • Well Read with Jill McCorkle Recorded: Sep 16 2020 61 mins
    University Libraries at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
    Jill McCorkle’s, '80, first two novels were released simultaneously when she was just out of college, and the New York Times called her “a born novelist.” Since then, she has published six novels and four collections of short stories, and her work has appeared in Best American Short Stories several times, as well as The Norton Anthology of Short Fiction.

    Five of her books have been New York Times Notable books, and her novel, “Life After Life,” was a New York Times bestseller. She has received the New England Booksellers Award, the John Dos Passos Prize for Excellence in Literature and the North Carolina Award for Literature. Jill has written for The New York Times Book Review, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, Garden and Gun, The Atlantic and other publications.

    Moderated by Daniel Wallace, '08, J. Ross MacDonald Distinguished Professor / Director of Creative Writing, Jill will discuss her latest novel, “Hieroglyphics,” a mesmerizing story about the burden of secrets carried across generations. It is a novel fitting for our time, as Sylvia Brownrigg suggests in the New York Times Book Review, “A good novel can perform the same perception-bending trick as a lockdown: slowing time, throwing light on shadowed corners, reminding us of the interdependencies among us that we once took for granted.”
