About this title

Synopsis:

By the author of "Come To Me". Elizabeth is clever, difficult and unlovable as a child, forging strange bonds with unsuitable people. As she grows into womanhood Elizabeth continues to cause chaos. This story of growing up presents love across the generations and love across racial difference.

Review:

In this first novel, Amy Bloom spins the tale of one Elizabeth Taube, charting her progress from an unloved adolescent to (alas) an unloved, middle-aged mother. To be sure, Elizabeth has had no shortage of suitors. Yet, one by one, they desert her, leaving nothing but their imprints upon her personality--which, if we are to take the title literally, is almost all the personality we have. The author steers clear of sentimentalizing her heroine's plight. And Bloom's eerie ability to convey physical sensation--which also distinguished her story collection Come to Me--is on ample and impressive display.
