Review: Mars

Mars Mars by Asja Bakić
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

These stories from Bosnian writer Asja Bakic, translated by Jennifer Zoble, run a gamut of speculative and satirical situations (so don't expect Mars as a setting for most of them.) These stories capture a bit of bizarre combined with complex characters but all with a larger commentary on the world. (They reminded me of Julia Elliott (The Wilds) in the way there are elements that sneak up on you and take a story in an unexpected direction.)

I had a copy of these stories from the publisher through Edelweiss. The collection came out March 19, 2019, and this is a good one to earmark for Women in Translation month!
