u A GUIDE TO BEING BORN: Stories
“Agressively imaginative.”—New York Times.
“[These] stories...contain elements of fantasy
juxtaposed against starkly realistic elements,
and the fantastic casts the realistic into relief.
But what distinguishes Ausubel from the
other writers practicing this near-genre is her
expansiveness. Though that quality has its
hazards, it hits its mark very securely here....
[This book] makes you feel as if you have
emerged from a concert of atonal music, every
object in the world momentarily transformed
by Ausubel’s gloriously eccentric vision.”—The

unpredictable novel...Ausubel’s original voice
combines fresh, clear observation and Old
Testament grandeur.”—The New Yorker.
