Amy Bloom Collection Stars in Kindle Commercial

Author Amy Bloom‘s new short story collection, Where the God of Love Hangs Out, starred in a recent Amazon Kindle ad. In the television spot, an eBook reader enjoys Bloom’s book on the beach.

Watch the whole ad in the video embedded above. Over at Popisms, you can read the page featured in the Amazon ad, beginning with the line, “I reached across the table but he shrugged me off.”

Bloom has published stories in The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, and The Atlantic Monthly, but nothing can beat a 30-second television spot. (Via Me and My Kindle and Smart Bitches)
