Product Description

Review

"Beautifully astute . . . extravagantly fine fiction." --Janet Maslin, "The New York Times" "Wise and resounding . . . [Amy] Bloom joins the ranks of the unforgettable: F. Scott Fitzgerald's eyeless time; Virginia Woolf's impassivity in the progress of her characters' lives."--"Los Angeles Times" "[Bloom] writes in beautifully wrought prose, with spunky humor and a flair for delectably eccentric details. . . . Brava."--"The New York Times Book Review" "To read Bloom is to fall in love--with her characters and with the magic that language can make."--"More " "Stirring . . . Characters [are] rendered in sexy, loving, living color."--"San Francisco Chronicle" "[An] indelible new collection . . . Bloom illuminates the way our affections define us, old and young, for better or worse."--"People" "Moving, shocking, written with compassion and understanding and generously reflective of the fragility of our lives."--"The Miami Herald" spent a week

I almost gave up on the book, because the start of first story I found a bit depressing. It seemed like a story of "pensioner sex" and I just did not want to read about it. Then the pace and interest in the first story picked up, as it did with the rest of the book.

The stories are about real people in the real US and the characters are interesting, hateful or loveable or just real.

Some stories are almost novellas, and they are all worth reading. Sometimes I had to reread sentences because who is doing what is not always explictly stated, I had to work a bit harder than normal. But that might just be me.

I'm not - or hadn't been until I read this - a fan of short story collections (one-offs I like...). So this took me utterly by surprise! Often when writing is so well-crafted it loses emotion. However both were in abundance in this collection - so much so that I immediately sought out her entire back-catalogue. This book is just beautiful.

When I finished this book, I did something I've never done before - I went back and read it again. The prose is that good. From the first page, you know you are in the presence of a great writer who also understands the vagaries of the human heart. Bloom constantly changes perspectives which make the stories very rounded and immensely satisfying. One reviewer said they nearly gave up reading because the start of the first story made it feel as if it were going to be about "pensioner sex" - well, firstly, as someone rather advanced in years, I see nothing wrong with that! and, secondly, the story is about so, so much more than sex.

A very interesting collection of short stories, about love and relationships. Subtle, very well-written, it makes you read it in a few days. Loved it!
