Outside is the world from which she has been severed: her young son, Jackson, and the San Francisco of her youth. Inside is a new reality: thousands of women hustling for the bare essentials needed to survive; the bluffing and pageantry and casual acts of violence by guards and prisoners alike; and the deadpan absurdities of institutional living, portrayed with great humor and precision.u003cbru003e u003cbru003e Stunning and unsentimental, u003ciu003eThe Mars Roomu003c/iu003e is “wholly authentic…profound…luminous” (u003ciu003eThe Wall Street Journalu003c/iu003e),u003cbu003e u003c/bu003e “one of those books that enrage you even as they break your heart” (u003ciu003eThe New York Times Book Review, u003c/iu003ecover review)—a spectacularly compelling, heart-stopping novel about a life gone off the rails in contemporary America. It is audacious and tragic, propulsive and yet beautifully refined and “affirms Rachel Kushner as one of our best novelists” (u003ciu003eEntertainment Weeklyu003c/iu003e).
