Praise for Tante Eva
"I have read and loved all of Paula Bomer's books but with Tante Eva
she has taken her talent up a notch. From the opening scene to the final the pages this novel is utterly gripping, exquisitely written and wholly original. Tante Eva
is Bomer in her mightiest form; a triumph."–Jessica Anya Blau, author of Mary Jane
"I inhaled this novel. Astute. Empathetic. Unsparing. Brilliant. Bomer pushes the emotional envelope–and then shoves harder."–Thelma Adams, author of Bittersweet Brooklyn
"Bomer's novel is incisive in cataloging the consequences of war, and of the restrictive political systems that lead to, or follow from, it. For Eva, condemning the Nazis was easy; acknowledging the shortcomings of communism is less so . . . Tante Eva
is a sensitive, startling novel about post-Soviet existence."–Foreword Reviews
