About Honorary Astronaut:

"With intense energy, vivacity of mind, and deft thought, Nate Pritts whips metaphor into the heady meringue of being so he can jump out of his own lemony birthday pie and make a romantically existential wish over all our secret monologues. Honorary Astronaut is not only vastly entertaining but so humanly important you’ve already received your invitation. Come as you are."
—Jack Myers

"Nate Pritts brings to the vast spaces of human emotion a vivid voice and an undiluted enthusiasm. Loss is a kind of joy here, filling the sky with its balloons. Passionate, playful, crafted—Honorary Astronaut settles into orbit with an exclamation point all its own!"
—Judith Kitchen
