Ramona Ausubel's six favorite books

Ramona Ausubel's new novel is Sons and Daughters of Ease and Plenty. One of her six favorite books, as shared at The Week magazine:
Florida by Christine Schutt

Alice Fivey's father died when she was 5, and she is 10 when her mother loses custody rights and enters a mental institution. Alice, shuttled from home to home, is left to build herself a story. Schutt's prose is blindingly beautiful — complicated, precise — a reminder that language itself is a refuge.
Read about the other books on the list.
