National Book Award Finalist

"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

This stunning collection of stories from New York Times bestselling author Amy Bloom takes us into the inner worlds of families, the hidden corners of marriages and affairs and friendships, and introduces us to people whose lives are shaken and changed by love. This is fiction that stays with you long after you've turned the last page, that celebrates the flawed dignity of the human and reminds us all of the fine venture of living in grace and hope in the worlds we are born to and make.
