Review of Madeehah Reza, “86 Days in Flight,” Luna Station Quarterly 51 (2022): Read online. Reviewed by Sara L. Uckelman.
I love epistolary stories! This story is told through letters from Amira to her granddad. He remained on earth while Amira and her mother took to space, leaving a dying earth behind. It’s a story of complicated familial relationships, of loss, and of the peace that writing brings. It’s a simple, straightforward, and soothing story: Nice to read if you want something calm and wonderfully positive.
