Reviews of Spinning to Mars by Meg Pokrass (Blue Light Book Award, 2021)
Meg Pokrass’s Spinning to Mars is composed of “Micros”–some seventy of them.  She also calls it a “very short book,” but it’s one of the most readable and illuminating experiences you’re likely to have in the coming years. It’s low-key funny but also subtly chilling.  It’s about the vicissitudes of love, but then it’s also about the gift, the surprise, and the unfairness of human relationships.  I find myself giggling or tearing up or just staggering around the house with what these “Micros” have done to me. -David Huddle, author of My Surly Heart Meg Pokrass has written an exquisite collection of linked stories. As I read Spinning to Mars I felt plunged, soaked, immersed—however you want to get down into a life both deep and wide. This book will spin you off to Mars with its exacting language and biting insight. Here is the kind of compressed writing that I long for and rarely find. –Sherrie Flick, author of Thank Your Lucky Stars
