Enid is many things: lesbian, serial dater, deaf in one ear, space obsessive, true crime fanatic. When she’s not listening to grizzly murder podcasts, she’s managing her crippling phobia of bald people and trying hard not to think about her mortifying teenage years – which is hard, when she’s lost the password to her old YouTube account and the (many) vlogs that her teen self once uploaded. She’s worried about herself, her depressive mother, and what the deal is with gender reveal parties. But as Enid fumbles her way through her first serious relationship and navigates a new family life with her estranged half-sisters, she starts to worry that someone is following her. As her paranoia spirals out of control, Enid must contend with her mounting suspicion that something is seriously wrong with her…

Full of charm, humour and heart, Interesting Facts About Space is a pitch-perfect exploration of the strange ways we try to connect with others, and the power of sharing our secret selves with the people we love.

Interesting Facts About Space
By Emily Austin
Review by Marija

A quirky, often hilarious, and poignant book about Enid – a queer true crime aficionado who enjoys facts about space and is trying to live her best life while coping with a multitude of phobias.
In the middle of this, she is endeavouring to repair the dysfunctional relationship with her family while falling in love for the first time. The writing style makes this book – it is direct, while veering off into all sorts of unexpected directions. Once you start, you will find it difficult to put down.
