Winner of the PEN Center USA Literary Award for Fiction and the VCU Cabell First Novelist Award, Ramona Ausubel is the author of the novel No One is Here Except All of Us and a collection of short stories A Guide to Being Born.  Set in Martha’s Vineyard on Labor Day, 1976, her latest novel, Sons and Daughters of Ease and Plenty (Riverhead Books) begins as family happily prepares for a birthday celebration when they learn that the unimaginable has occurred: There is no more money. Imbued with both the whimsical and the profound, Sons and Daughters of Ease and Plenty is a story of American wealth, class, family, and mobility.
