Tracy K. Smith: Life on Mars

Nov 15, 2012

Tracy K. Smith reads from Life on Mars. She began:

“I often start, kind of preface my readings from this book Life on Mars, by just saying two things. This first is, that, when I was initially thinking about space and the universe, and science fiction as devices, they really were just that, devices. I was trying to figure out a way of finding a different kind of distance from the kinds of topics I find myself drawn towards. At the simplest level, they’re basically questions of why we do the things that we do to one another.”
