Product description


"Ask Baba Yaga is Dear Sugar for the supernatural set. Witty, wise, and weird in all the right ways, Kitaiskaia proves that good advice is its own magic spell. She meets each query with a generous spirit and a crone-old soul. Pull up a chair in her chicken-leg hut, and let her potent, poetic insights bring you comfort during your darkest nights." (Pam Grossman, author of What Is a Witch)

Ask Baba Yaga is a beautiful, strange, troubled, moving piece of fresh air. Pick up this book, turn the pages, inhale, and feel ready to march back into everyday troubles with renewed courage and hope. I adored it." (Edward Carey, author of The Iremonger Trilogy)

Ask Baba Yaga is no ordinary book...Reader, hand over your soft animal soul to Baba; watch as she seizes it, pokes around, finds the ticklish and tender spots. Rejoice in her primordial wisdom." (Kelly Luce, author of Pull Me Under)

Ask Baba Yaga is the only advice column I trust. Taisia Kitaiskaia's thoughtful, otherworldly responses are calming talismans in a time when turmoil feels a part of daily life. When you're feeling adrift, let Baba Yaga be your remedy." (Emma Carmichael,

"Every word of
Ask Baba Yaga feels like a gift." (Julie Buntin, author of Marlena)

"Fans of Cheryl Strayed and haunted grandmothers will find solace and solutions in these bite-sized piquant pieces. Baba Yaga's advice lifts up the ordinary problems of love affairs, bodies, loneliness, friendship, and loss, making each as strange and extraordinary as life itself." (Amelia Gray, author of Isadora and Gutshot)

"I am in awe of how Taisia Kitaiskaia so beautifully captures the tough crone love, the sly witchy wit, and the uncanny, otherworldly wisdom of Baba Yaga...This book is a rare gift for all of us who find ourselves navigating life's thorniest paths." (Cate Fricke, fairy tale writer and blogger)

"There is plenty of advice in the world, but only Taisia Kitaiskaia has channeled the wit and wisdom of a solitary witch whose cauldron has seen more than its share of bloody human parts. In the pages of this book 'there will be no sootheengs wench, ' but you will find a wild clarity and a rich seething aliveness matched only by your strangest childhood dreams. Read it if you dare." (Alyssa Harad, author of Coming to My Senses)
