Amy Bloom is the author of the international best-selling memoir In Love, the story of her husband Brian’s early-onset Alzheimer’s and his and their decisions about his life and death. She’s written three novels: White Houses, Lucky Us, Away, –all NY Times best-sellers– and three collections of short stories: Where the God Of Love Hangs Out, Come to Me (finalist, National Book Award), and A Blind Man Can See How Much I Love You (finalist, National Book Critics Circle Award). Her first book of nonfiction, Normal: Transsexual CEOs, Crossdressing Cops and Hermaphrodites with Attitudes, is a staple of university sociology and biology courses. She has written for magazines such as The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, Vogue, Elle and The Atlantic Monthly and her work has been translated into seventeen languages.

“Amy Bloom gets more meaning into individual sentences than most authors manage in whole books.” – The New Yorker

“For what she can impart about the human condition, and for her ability to set out a rollicking story that entertains from the first page to the last, Bloom should be on every list and in every bookshelf.” – Louise Swinn, The Sydney Morning Herald
