Today I chat with Lydia Netzer, the author of Shine Shine Shine. Reviewers have passionately praised Netzer's debut novel for its sci-fi love story: the book follows the relationship of Sunny, a congenitally bald woman, and Maxon, a robotic space engineer, as they find their own version of normal both at home and up among the stars. The novel's blend of folksy and futuristic is like a bacon muffin: shocking, yet somehow it all makes perfect sense.
One of the things I identified with most in your book was the somewhat mystical/alien nature of pregnancy. What was the weirdest part of being pregnant for you?
