Join the Random House Reader s Circle for author chats and more. " My father s wife died. My mother said we should drive down to his place and see what might be in it for us. " So begins this remarkable novel by Amy Bloom, whose critically acclaimed "Away" was called a literary triumph ("The New York Times"). "Lucky Us" is a brilliantly written, deeply moving, fantastically funny novel of love, heartbreak, and luck. Disappointed by their families, Iris, the hopeful star and Eva the sidekick, journey through 1940s America in search of fame and fortune. Iris s ambitions take the pair across the America of Reinvention in a stolen station wagon, from small-town Ohio to an unexpected and sensuous Hollywood, and to the jazz clubs and golden mansions of Long Island. With their friends in high and low places, Iris and Eva stumble and shine though a landscape of big dreams, scandals, betrayals, and war. Filled with gorgeous writing, memorable characters, and surprising events, "Lucky Us" is a thrilling and resonant novel about success and failure, good luck and bad, the creation of a family, and the pleasures and inevitable perils of family life, conventional and otherwise. From Brooklyn s beauty parlors to London s West End, a group of unforgettable people love, lie, cheat and survive in this story of our fragile, absurd, heroic species. Praise for "Lucky Us" "Lucky Us" is a remarkable accomplishment. One waits a long time for a novel of this scope and dimension, replete with surgically drawn characters, a mix of comedy and tragedy that borders on the miraculous, and sentences that should be in a sentence museum. Amy Bloom is a treasure. Michael Cunningham Exquisite . . . a short, vibrant book about all kinds of people creating all kinds of serial, improvisatory lives. "The New York Times" Bighearted, rambunctious . . . a bustling tale of American reinvention . . . If America has a Victor Hugo, it is Amy Bloom, whose picaresque novels roam the world, plumb the human heart and send characters into wild roulettes of kismet and calamity. "The Washington Post" Bloom s crisp, delicious prose gives ["Lucky Us"] the feel of sprawling, brawling life itself. . . . "Lucky Us" is a sister act, which means a double dose of sauce and naughtiness from the brilliant Amy Bloom. "The Oregonian" "" A tasty summer read that will leave you smiling . . . Broken hearts [are] held together by lipstick, wisecracks and the enduring love of sisters. "USA Today" Exquisitely imagined . . . [a] grand adventure. "O: The Oprah Magazine" "" Marvelous picaresque entertainment . . . a festival of joy and terror and lust and amazement that resolves itself here, warts and all, in a kind of crystalline Mozartean clarity of vision. "Elle""
