1. Tracy Smith reads from Life on Mars, November 15, 2012 at 92Y. She began: 

    "I often start, kind of preface my readings from this book Life on Mars, by just saying two things. This first is, that, when I was initially thinking about space and the universe, and science fiction as devices, they really were just that, devices. I was trying to figure out a way of finding a different kind of distance from the kinds of topics I find myself drawn towards. At the simplest level, they’re basically questions of why we do the things that we do to one another.”
