"What is it about North Carolina? First they gave us David Sedaris. Now they’ve produced Jane Borden. She’s charming, polite and, yes, very funny."
"The classic story of Country Club mouse meets City mouse, a sweet reminder of what it feels like to be new in New York."
"If you took Mark Twain, shaved the mustache, added lady parts, and dropped him in present-day Manhattan, he’d wind up writing this fabulous book. Instead, the universe provided Jane Borden, who nailed it."
"Reading this charming and zany debut, I just wanted to hug Jane Borden. Out of all the North Carolina greenhorns who ever navigated the funky streets of 21st century New York, she may be my favorite. And she can write a sentence too!"
—Gary Shteyngart, author of Super Sad True Love Story
"I love how sincere Jane is while being every bit as funny as comedy writers who are detached and ironic. This is a deeply personal and hilarious love letter to both New York City and the south. I never thought I'd say those words."
—Mike Birbiglia, author of Sleepwalk with Me and Other Painfully True Stories

I never knew how close we both came to prison time.
