The Mars Room - Rachel Kushner

Love Kushner and everything she does. In a past life, she and I were best friends, roaming the streets of some crazy city together, having a cocktail, riding motorcycles, not stopping at any phone booths to call people we knew. In this life, I can only say how much her work stands out in its sharp, beautiful way, including this story of Romy who is serving out her sentence for killing her stalker. Literary crush confirmed. *This copy from Berlin has a crease on the back cover, see the photo.
