PRAISE FOR DORI’S NOVEL

“Reminiscent of Mona Simpson and Elizabeth Strout in the way Ostermiller expertly explores family dynamics and mother-daughter bonds, (Outside the Ordinary World) gives a shattering portrait of ordinary people breaking asunder and helplessly trying to glue back together… There is absolutely nothing ordinary about this astonishingly moving and complex novel.”

–Caroline Leavitt, The Boston Globe
