Reviews

‘An urgent, riveting, fabulously entertaining road trip of a novel, Away grabs you by the throat from the first page to the last, breaks your heart and shakes all your senses awake’ Emma Donoghue, author of THE REHEARSAL

‘Celebrate mother-love with Amy Bloom's latest novel, Away

‘Harrowing, intense and deeply moving, this is a story about surviving the worst nightmares that history bequeaths us. I had to keep reading, willing Lillian to win through, and hoping that the strengths of courage, humour and kindness would prevail. Even as my hopes were realised, I was subtly reminded that this is a world where nothing can ever be quite certain or secure’ Margaret Elphinstone

‘Proof that a thoroughly conventional novel can soar so long as the execution is extraordinary’ Lionel Shriver
