Ramona Ausubel
Summary 
A book of fantastical short stories using magical circumstances to explore the realities of the heart. Ausubel is also the author of the popular novel No One Is Here Except All Of Us.
Review 

Ausubel does an excellent job illuminating the miraculous and the mundane through delightfully strange situations - a man who grows drawers in his chest, a cadre of grandmothers on a mysterious ship, a girl who plays with a Civil War-era ghost in the woods behind her house. With heartbreakingly honest descriptions of pregnancy, birth, death, old age, and falling in love, Ausubel's precise yet simple language draws in the reader.
