NPR stories about Amy Bloom
Author Ayelet Waldman, the author of Bad Mother, recommends three books about motherhood that offer a break from brutal "motherhood is hell" horror stories as well as cloying sentimentality.
In her new novel, Away, Amy Bloom tells the story of a woman who embarks on a journey to Siberia in search of her daughter. The author discusses the book's rich detail and the challenge of coming to the tale's end.
