Publisher's Summary

In 1927, a Russian immigrant woman set off from New York City to walk home to Russia on foot. Amy Bloom tells how she took this kernel of historic fact and dreamed up a lush, epic, and yet wonderfully intimate novel.

Thalia Book Club Readers and writers meet for intimate conversations about compelling new books and favorite classics in fiction, essay, biography and more. Evenings include an actor performing an excerpt, an interview and a conversation with the audience. A book signing follows each event.

Short and worth listening to

This is a short reading, plus a discussion with the author. Her insights into writing and human nature are brilliant. The reading of an excerpt from the book was not well rehearsed, but that did not detract from the value of this Audible original.

This is only one chapter of the story

I ordered this thinking it was the reading of the book. It isn't. Just people talking about it.
