About the Author

Amy Bloom is the author of Away, a novel, and two collections of prize-winning stories: Come to Me and A Blind Man Can See How Much I Love You. She is a psychotherapist and teaches creative writing at Yale University, where she is a Fellow of Calhoun College.


"Bloom writes about passion--shameful, blissful and perverse. . . . Her voice is sure and brisk, her language often beautiful; the result is humorous and well as heartrending fiction. . . . Her work has the power both to disturb and to console." -- New York Times Book Review

"A wonderful collection of stories by a writer of amazing skill, intelligence and compassion. Come to Me is a debut which leaves the reader begging for more." -- Alice Hoffman

"I feel as though before discovering Amy Bloom, I was lost, and now I'm found." -- Ruth Coughlin, Detroit News

"Amy Bloom has many voices and lives many lives. . . . Come to Me is charged from the first line. . . . Then step by step it gathers weight, texture, and power, and suddenly it ends with what is really another beginning. . . . We know we are in the hands of a real writer." -- Margo Jefferson, New York Times

"What this gifted storyteller offers on every page is an offer impossible to refuse: Come in, sit down and prepare to be beguiled. . . . Bloom is the psychotherapist as alchemist, transmuting the messy dross of everyday life into the gold of artfully shaped fiction." -- Newsday
