Meg Howrey: The Wanderers

Acclaimed author Ruth Ozeki (A Tale for the Time Being) calls Howrey’s literary space-opera The Wanderers “a transcendent, cross-cultural and cross-planetary journey into the mysteries of space and self,” and adds, “Howrey's expansive vision left me awestruck.” The Wanderers follows three astronauts, led by a brilliant space pioneer, Helen Kane, as they prepare for a trip to Mars through a simulation so realistic that the line between what’s real and unreal becomes blurry, forcing the group to face the challenges of their voyage and the conflicts they face within themselves. J. Ryan Stradal, bestselling author of Kitchens of the Great Midwest, says, ”Fiercely inventive and deeply empathetic, Howrey’s exquisite novel demonstrates that the final frontier may not be space after all.” Meg Howrey is a former dancer who performed with The Joffrey, Eglevsky Ballet, and City Ballet of Los Angeles. She is the author of two previous novels, Blind Sight and The Cranes Dance, and the coauthor of the bestselling novels City of Dark Magic, and City of Lost Dreams, published under the pen name Magnus Flyte.
