Overview

Playful, sly, deadpan imagining of the lives of fictional movie star couple, Richard and Julia. Martian Dawn presents a truly alternative present. Its protagonists, Richard and Julia, are surprisingly and strikingly reminiscent of the millionaire and prostitute in the film version of the Pygmalion update, Pretty Woman . While shooting a sci-fi movie called Martian Dawn , their lives intersect with a sea captain, producer, therapist and Tibetan Buddhist rinpoche.

Reviews

Reading Martian Dawn is like watching an ultracool comedy of the future where familiar movie types develop into idyllic interplanetary characters in order to make yet more movies. It's as though Star Trek, Pretty Woman, and There's Something About Mary had been sublimated in an unlikely fusion that is both comforting and hilarious. - Harry Mathews
