Women On The Move: Allegra Goodman, "Sam"

REGISTER

What self do you want to be in the face of who you are expected to be? How do you maintain the belief in yourself that you had as a child? Where can you find a place, you feel you truly belong? The beautiful ode to girlhood, Sam, wrestles with those universal questions in a story about a girl caught between a father she loves who is rarely around, a mother pushing her to plan for a secure future and her own penchant for unconventionality.

After writing – and illustrating – her first novel at the age of seven, Allegra Goodman has gone on to author seven novels and two collections of short stories. She has received a Whiting Award in Fiction, the Salon Award for Fiction, and a fellowship from the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study.
