“In Ellingsen’s deft hands, a set of gold-rimmed china becomes uncanny signifiers of quotidian life disrupted, a swarm of eels becomes a writhing feeding collective that entrances even as it repulses, and a routine conversation about minutia can slide into a brilliant speculation on the relative positions of stars billions of years in the future. Now We Can See the Moon creeps up on you, seeps into you, and leaves your mind crackling long after you’ve finished the final chapter.”

—Dr. Andy Hageman


“Swirling prose seamlessly mingles the brutally matter-of-fact details of crisis management with the fragility and fleeting nature of life.”
