A collection of three stories that grapple with queerness, acceptance, and connection after tragic experiences.


IN VOYAGER 2, THIS IS VOYAGER 1, OVER, Maxwell Suzuki navigates the tensions and freedoms of isolation, retreat, seclusion, and self-discovery. Like the places they inhabit, Suzuki’s characters exist as though they have yet to fully arrive. In doing so, they are nowhere but themselves, their own minds and bodies in limbo, as they gaze back at the world, artfully examining the ways it shapes and misshapes them. Over the course of these three stories, a quiet, cosmic beauty unfolds.
—Devon Capizzi, author of My Share of the Body and I Am Not Coming Out to You
