"Amy Bloom's Where the God of Love Hangs Out. The writing is so crystalline that each chapter just about breaks my heart, but I can't stay away from it. Bloom's understanding of our souls, of the nature of love and of loss, is so profound, and the writing so perfect, that I keep re-reading chapters just to try to understand how she does what she does. Which is like trying to understand how Old Faithful does what it does."
