`Elegant, thoughtful, gorgeously written. A meditation on solitude, connection, aspiration, imagination and reality, which builds effortlessly to moments of immense power and honesty' -- Charles Yu, author of How to Live Safely in a Science Fiction Universe and Sorry Please Thank You `The Wanderers is a wonderful exploration of space, trust, and what it means to be a conscious creature, finely-tuned and funny from the first page to the last' -- Jonathan Lee, author of High Dive `A stealthily brilliant novel. A distinct, shimmering vision of who we are and where we think we want to go. Meg Howrey's three astronauts exist, as we do now, at the edge of science fiction, their story propelled by a seriousness and intelligence wrapped in a comic and tender humanity. Meg Howrey delivers this vision in a prose that feels new, sui generis, with a kind of sleek precision that is at once simple, gorgeous, and profoundly moving' -- Peter Nichols, bestselling author of The Rocks and A Voyage for Madmen `The Wanderers is unquestionably the work of a brilliant writer at the height of her powers. Dazzling, a work of wondrous skill and ambition, a book about space that's truly about people, but also about the lonely wonder of true trailblazers, the disparate cast behind a great life, and the compromises that build success' -- J. Ryan Stradal, bestselling author of Kitchens of the Great Midwest 'Phenomenal. A transcendent, cross-cultural and cross-planetary journey into the mysteries of space and self. Howrey's expansive vision left me awestruck' -- Ruth Ozeki, author of A Tale for the Time Being
