As Close to Us as Breathing

As Close to Us as Breathing is a masterpiece. The author, Elizabeth Poliner, uses her poetic skills to tell a gripping story about three Jewish sisters in the late 1940’s. The beautifully told mystery that involves a death that impacts each of the vividly detailed characters is a blistering read. The novel builds like a well-oiled classic machine with brilliant use of metaphors. As you swallow each sentence, you’ll be transported into a rich landscape that will devour your senses. You won’t want the book to end. This novel topples your wildest dreams as to what literature can do for your soul.
