Ask Baba Yaga: Otherworldly Advice for Everyday Troubles is a mirror revealing primal wisdom, a cauldron of bloody human parts, a source of fierce clarity and richness for your wildest dreams. Taisia Kitaiskaia's book has it all, if your dare to read it and glance into that mirror.
The back of the book reads:
In age-old Slavic fairy tales, the witch Baba Yaga is sought out by those with a burning need to for guidance. In contemporary life, Baba Yaga - a dangerous, slippery oracle - answered earnest questions on The Hairpin for years. These pages collect her most poignant, surreal, and humorous exchanges along with all-new questions and answers for those seeking her mystical advice. With a strange, otherworldly style, poetic clarity, and striking honesty, Ask Baba Yaga contains beautifully skewed wisdom to be consulted in times of need.
Taisia Kitaiskaia was born in Russia and raised in America. She is the author of Literary Witches: A Celebration of Magical Women Writers, illustrated by Katy Horan. Her poetry has been published widely. Baba Yaga lives deep in a treacherous wood; Taisia lives in Austin, Texas.
