Susan Rubin

Fantasy/Time Travel

The debut novel from Los Angeles-based playwright and filmmaker Susan
Rubin is a trippy fantasy that uses time travel to explore the inner
drives of a woman in midlife. In The Road Not Taken, a simple trip to the lipstick counter becomes an opportunity to unravel the mystery of self.

Widowed suddenly at age 50, Deborah is left with plenty of money but

no direction to her life. Shedding her suburban housewife life, she
moves back to the West Village where she grew up. When she meets a woman
who appears to be an identical twin, Deborah discovers the Lost: a
group of 100 fully-formed people who were dropped off on Earth as it
cooled down and who have lived on the planet as it developed. The Lost
show her the myriad dimensions of Spacetime, taking her to ancient
Egypt, Weimar Germany, and planets without inhabitants. They reunite her
with deceased loved ones. She forms relationships with an Egyptian god
and a famous artist through whom she lives new truths and learns who she
needs to become to walk the road not taken.
