Reviews

"Each story in this collection finds a way to record the tensions between the corporeal and the invisible, the forces that animate us but ultimately can t be dissected, our anti-anatomies. The dismay of coming to the final page is easily combated by following the example of Ausubel s characters and beginning all over again." "The New York Times Book Review" Aggressively imaginative. "The New York Times" "Lyrical stories arranged around themes of birth, gestation, conception and love. . . . Ausubel has a gift of language so rich that even the most mundane events are invested with poetry, and many of her characters are in need of all the poetry they can muster." "Kirkus" "Ausubel is a master stylist of vibrant, concise prose, and these stories, with love most often at their cores, can be appreciated for that alone." "Booklist" "These stories reminded me of branches full of cherry blossoms: fresh, delicate, beautiful, expressive, otherworldly. I eagerly read from one story to the next." Aimee Bender"
