About the Author

Nona Fernandez was born in Santiago, Chile. She is an actress and writer, and has published two plays, a collection of short stories, and six novels, including Space Invaders and The Twilight Zone, which was a finalist for the National Book Award.

"Another one-of-a-kind blend of the personal and political. . . . Throughout, Fernandez's focus is on the connections between lost memories, black holes and history's 'ghosts.' . . . Chile -- and readers everywhere -- should be grateful."--Anderson Tepper, The New York Times Book Review

"Together, Space Invaders, The Twilight Zone, and Voyager function like the twin probes collecting information with every sensor at their disposal, while simultaneously telling a story that says: This is who we were; this is what it was like. To record your experiences and tell your story, regardless of scale, serves as a reckoning with a past that so many have tried to bury."--Amanda Paige Inman, The Nation "'Who are we? Where are we going? Where do we come from?' In finding poetic answers to those queries, Fernandez documents the history of her homeland and aids her ailing mother (whose epilepsy diagnosis brought additional complications), all while musing on the intricacies of the universe. The result is a moving reflection that's scientific, cerebral, and spiritual."--Publishers Weekly "[Fernandez] is an expert at weaving seemingly disparate topics together, at finding their common threads. . . . Wherever this great writer (and translator!) wants to take us, I'm there."--Katie Yee, Literary Hub "In precise yet elegant prose that shirks melodrama, Fernandez renders crisp and lingering images that orient us to the changing surroundings of the book's steady orbit. . . . She circumvents the oversentimentality that is so often the downfall of stories about family and memory, by constructing a scope that expands and contracts like breath in the body."--Claire Calderon, Los Angeles Review of Books

"Past atrocities still threaten our present. The answer, Fernandez suggests, is to document the ugliness and beauty of where we've been without flinching--a message to anyone coming after. Hello, here we are, don't forget us."--Morgan Graham, Chicago Review of Books "[An] ambitious, often dazzling memoir. . . . Astronomy; astrology; astrophysics; neuroscience -- each of these is incorporated into a dizzying but sublime poetics that holds Voyager together, like a constellation woven into the fabric of the night sky."--Financial Times (UK) "Voyager is a captivating memoir that not only offers a deeper understanding of one of Chile's most acclaimed writers, but also a new insight into the history and resilience of the Chilean people."--New Statesman (UK)
