Over the next few weeks the TBA Book Group reads As Close to Us as Breathing, by Elizabeth Poliner. The New York Times called it “a big-hearted…novel,” the Jerusalem Post labelled it “super.” Three sisters gather at the family Connecticut shore cottage for the summer─a world of mothers and children during the week, until the men arrive for Shabbat and the weekend. Tragedy rips apart the equilibrium of the happy clan, causing each member to look upon the others in a new, and not always flattering, light.
