Praise
"[A] sweeping saga of endurance and rebirth...Bloom has created an extraordinary range of characters, setting, and emotions. Absolutely stunning." (starred review)
"Summery doesn't do justice to this compact epic's richness....an amazingly dense, impressively original novel." (starred review)
"With the same mesmerizing grace she brings to her award-winning short-stories, [Amy] Bloom's new novel sweeps the reader along from page one."
"AWAY is a literary triumph, a book-club must and a popular novel destined for wide readership. It is accessible to the point of pure enthrallment without compromising its eloquence or thematic strength. Yet it is also a classic page-turner, one that delivers a relentlessly good read."
From the Publisher
Annotation After her parents die in a Russian pogrom, Lillian Leyb flees to 1940s New York and finds a home at the Goldfadn Yiddish Theater. But when she learns that her daughter Sophie is still alive in Siberia she travels by land across America through Chicago, Seattle, and Alaska, on her to Siberia, and her child. Filled with hardship and humor, exotic locales and playful language, AWAY is a lyrical miracle of a novel.
