With an acute understanding of human nature, forged by twenty years as a psychotherapist, Amy Bloom explores the unexpected affair between Eleanor Roosevelt and Lorena Hickok in her novel White Houses. This forbidden affair was an open secret, as was FDR’s affair with his secretary Missy Le Hand. Bloom is a New York Times bestselling author who has been hailed as “one of America’s unique and most gifted literary voices” by Colum McCann.
