Awayland: Stories by Ramona Ausubel
(Riverhead Books, 2018, 224 pages)
I loved this collection of short stories and am definitely an Ausubel fan. I don’t even know how best to attempt to summarize them other than that I *so* enjoyed reading this book.
Some blurbs from Amazon:
“Excellent and peculiar… Ausubel’s imagination…wants to offer consolation for how ghastly things can get, a type of healing that only reading can provide. All 11 of these stories are deeply involving.” –New York Times Book Review
“Funny, endearing short stories…Each tale looks to the future in its own particular, touching way.” –Harper’s Bazaar
An inventive story collection that spans the globe as it explores love, childhood, and parenthood with an electric mix of humor and emotion.
I’ll certainly be reading more of her work 🙂
