    In this intimate dual memoir, she and her daughter, Ann, offer distinct perspectives as a 50-something and a 20-something, each on a quest to redefine herself and to rediscover each other. Between 1998 and 2000, Sue and Ann travel throughout Greece and France. Sue, coming to grips with aging, caught in a creative vacuum, longing to reconnect with her grown daughter, struggles to enlarge a vision of swarming bees into a novel.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This book needs a stronger story line.


    What could Sue Monk Kidd and Ann Kidd Taylor have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I'm not at all sure. I felt like I was reading someon'e "finding me" story from the 60's. It seemed dated and there wasn't a story to grab hold of.


    What three words best describe Sue Monk Kidd’s performance?

    Forced, dull,


    Did Traveling with Pomegranates inspire you to do anything?

    No

    In this sensuous, funny, and heartbreaking new book, Amy Bloom explores the unexpected patterns that all forms of love and loss weave into our lives.
