How Far is Up makes a simple observation (regarding the relative perception of distance) and a deeper point (touching on our open-ended relationship with the cosmos) and does so economically and with definite charm. - Graeme Base
A masterpiece - Susanne Gervay OAM
Btw, How Far is Up was launched in Toronto, Canada in April, where the star guest was none other than literary luminary MARGARET ATWOOD!
