In each of these eleven stories Ausubel’s stunning imagination and humor are moving, entertaining, and provocative, leading readers to see the familiar world in a new way.In “Atria” a pregnant teenager believes she will give birth to any number of strange animals rather than a human baby- in “Catch and Release” a girl discovers the ghost of a Civil War hero living in the woods behind her house- and in “Tributaries” people grow a new arm each time they fall in love.

Funny, surprising, and delightfully strange—all the stories have a strong emotional core- Ausubel’s primary concern is always love, in all its manifestations.
