I found "Dancing on Mars" to be a powerful book and the author to be incredibly brave. We are taught from a young age how special we are and everything good is praised. Our parents were incredibly strong but sadly many could only maintain that strength through denial of many perceived negatives. Worrying about what others thought seemed normal until we got older; and then few of us had the courage to write a book that so bravely laid it all out like the Saturday laundry pinned on the clothesline to dry. BUT Lucinda Shirley did just that and she did it with the same gift of storytelling that I remember her having all of my life. I always loved to be around Lucinda and listen to her stories. She had such great humor and an amazing quick wit. Even the sound of her voice had a quality that I can't describe but it kept me mesmerized for hours. Although I didn't recognize it at the time, I Iook back now and see the great substance that was also in her stories. What I found out in the book, is that she is also a gifted poet. This shouldn't surprise me because I always believed she wrote the best letters of anyone I knew.
"Dancing on Mars" touches on so many topics of interest, that I did not expect and don't want to spoil for you. So I'll just say that it was a wonderful read full of substance, humor, poetry and of course masterful storytelling! I hope this review will encourage you to read this fine book without my ruining any surprises for you with specific details. I highly recommend "Dancing on Mars" to you and to anyone else I run in to. :-) I know you'll enjoy it! I really, really do!!
