MARS by Asja Bakic

Reading Bakic's stories is like sitting down in a chair with uneven legs right as you’re told the authorities are on their way, & this time, they're not bringing the robots. Unsettling in unsettling ways, Bakic's mix of realism with science fiction & fabulism occupies the uncanny valley between the recognizable & the unrecognizable, unsheathing the weirdness of daily life & presenting a picture of humanity that is unsettling because of how quickly you recognize it. —Josh Cook, Porter Square Books
