The Mars Room

by Rachel Kushner
£8.99   paperback  Vintage Publishing (Vintage) (2019)

The Mars Room by Rachel Kushner SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2018
A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
 
From the author of internationally acclaimed The Flamethrowers – a fearless and heartbreaking novel about love, friendship and incarceration.
 
Romy Hall is starting two consecutive life sentences at Stanville Women’s Correctional Facility. Her crime? The killing of her stalker.
 
Inside awaits a world where women must hustle and fight for the bare essentials. Outside: the San Francisco of her youth. The Mars Room strip club where she was once a dancer. Her seven-year-old son, Jackson.
 
As Romy forms friendships over liquor brewed in socks and stories shared through sewage pipes her future seems to unfurl in one long, unwavering line – until news from beyond the prison bars forces Romy to try and outrun her destiny.
