The first novella by award-winning author Silvia Moreno-Garcia
With an introduction by Lavie Tidhar
Amelia dreams of Mars. The Mars of the movies and the imagination, an endless bastion of opportunities for a colonist with some guts. But she’s trapped in Mexico City, enduring the drudgery of an unkind metropolis, working as a rent-a-friend, selling her blood to old folks with money who hope to rejuvenate themselves with it, enacting a fractured love story. And yet there’s Mars, at the edge of the silver screen, of life.
Wide release July 2018.[Reviewers, head to Netgalley if you need an advance copy]
