Authors of The Menaced Assassin, The Other Planet and Red Moon/Red Lake , the noted collaborative team of Ascher/Straus contemplates the materials of the writer's life ("what gets cannibalized into fiction but doesn't get treated as fiction itself") in this new work, which explores the boundary between novel and notebook. A novel that takes up the tasks of the journal can also be read as a journal that documents the materials in the novel. In ABC Street the narrative of place and life of the mind work together to build up a panoramic view of related lives with no epic pretensions.
Sheila Ascher and Dennis Straus work as a team, and live in New York.
