Micael Dahlén’s novel “Life on Mars” is a story about being different, a story about longing: for elsewhere, for home, and for something completely different. It offers laughter, tears, philosophy, and aliens, as well as, human beings. And, it teaches the reader vital things such as why Martians could indeed live on earth, how anyone could crack your ATM code in a few seconds, how you can immediately tell if a person is lying, why a man should never let a lady skip the line to the bathroom; and why our fingertips get wrinkled in the water (and how this can help you escape Russian gangsters). To name just a few things.
