Others about Mars:
Mars is an informed and accomplished journalist whose command
of American politics puts many of us “natives” to shame.
— Sam Tanenhaus, author of The Death of Conservatism
I always love hearing Mars’ perspective. He helps me see my home country in a totally new way, full of wonder but still astute and spot-on.
— Kelly McEvers, host of NPR’s All Things Considered
Mars reads American social mores very deeply and writes about them with the insight
of someone who is both an insider and an outsider.
