Why This Must Be Read: Post-canon, Johansson has a lot of personal stuff to work through—and it's not immediately clear how her space squeeze fits into things. I love how the author explores her genuine uncertainly, grounding it in character history and personality traits beyond what we get in the movie, and lays it over a background of weirdly public personae and the strangeness of coming back to Earth, literally and otherwise.
