In " Hold Tight, " Della deals with the eath of her stepdaughte, and in the process she thinks about how her friends argue with their moms about stupid things like boys and clothes- Della wishes she could " stab them to death. " A mother watches her son go through sex reassignment surgery, criticizing everyone around her while coping with her pain.I loved the brutal honesty in Bloom 's short stories.

So why I chose this collection ( A Blind Man Can See How Much I Love You) of her short stories to start with, I 'm not entirely sure.

The next tal is about a fathe 's love extending to her son as the girl becomes her son.

I had just finished this when someone ( at a gathering of J 's family) asked me what I was reading and if I liked it.

That story was worth the whole nove.

When the story finishes, we find " Amy " the narrator who is but is n't Bloom herself, living in that house [ marriage: ] that she perceived as unwanted, even though she had to reduce it to its most desperate to make room for herself in it.It 's a terrible image.

I really like Amy Bloom 's writing.

With short stories, I usually read one of them from beginning to end and leave some time until I read the first, because I have a endency to mix characters and get confused.

Bloom is a bold, fearless writer and so far, I love anythin about her writing.
