Amy Bloom is the author of three novels: Lucky Us, Away, and Love Invents Us; and three collections of short stories: Where the God Of Love Hangs Out, Come to Me, and A Blind Man Can See How Much I Love You.
Bloom also has a children’s book, Little Sweet Potato, about appreciating one’s self and finding a community that takes all kinds. Her first book of nonfiction, Normal: Transsexual CEOs, Crossdressing Cops and Hermaphrodites with Attitudes, is a staple of university sociology and biology courses. She has written for magazines such as The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, Vogue, The Atlantic Monthly, Slate, and Salon, and her work has been translated into fifteen languages.

She is the Distinguished University Writer-in-Residence at Wesleyan University.
