Amy Bloom Quote: “We live and we love the world, Lillian thinks, and we kid ourselves that the world loves us back.”
Amy Bloom Quote: “We protected America from what happened, like a man takes care of his wife. The man doesn’t mind when she closes her eyes at the scary part of the ride, of the movie.

It’s a pleasure, and a relief, to keep that ignorance intact, even as it comes between them.”
