Amy BLOOM ... Away (Random House, 2007)

AMY BLOOM is the author of the novel, Love Invents Us (1997), as well as two collections of stories, Come to Me (1993) and A Blind Man Can See How Much I Love You (2000), all focusing on the “bittersweet solace of love in its myriad permutations.” Her new novel, Away (Random House, 2007), the sweeping story of an émigré mother who can’t and won’t forget her long-lost daughter and who then embarks on a gruelling journey across America and deep into Alaska, the Yukon and Siberia in search of her. Set in Russia and America in the 1920s, this could possibly be one of the books of 2007.
