The stories in Bloodknots, ferocious and powerful, are about family, both present and absent: about the threads that bind people together and the ones that unravel without warning. rnrnStubbornly original, fiercely honest, and imbued with a sensibility that speaks to the author’s Jewish heritage, Ami Sands Brodoff writes with authority, passion, and razor-sharp detail about identity and the longing for a connection in the face of loss, abandonment, and exclusion. Her characters are giants and orphans, society’s marginalized who struggle to free themselves from lives spent hiding in shadows. They walk the tightrope of survival, balancing between remembering and forgetting.
