Call Me Spes[6] is "a stunner and will leave you reassessing that phone you carry everywhere in your pocket. Privacy is thrown right out the window with that phone and its location services following you around, eavesdropping, and so much more."[7]

Sara Cahill Marron has invented a new poetic language with which to lead us through the modern-day technological Inferno that we now live in.[8] It needs to be read whole, from beginning to end, like the contemporary epic it is.[8]

"After the system takes on a name, it seeks even more answers and begins to lose itself: “what makes us human/is it these words/these ways we try to burrow through each other’s minds/” (pg. 100). As readers we are on this journey looking from the outside in, finding a system caught up in the drama of humanity and losing itself in that story. The operating system garners sympathy until we realize that this system is very much like us and the easy way in which we fall into social media drama and allow our privacy to be breached daily. We are the system and outside the system. We are one. (e.g. the Borg).[7]

In an interview with the author, Darrell Laurant writes: "This is a novel in verse. An operating system narrates the world around it, consisting of overheard conversations, emails, voicemails, communications of love and lament. This book started as a collection of ‘voices’, similar to Spoon River Anthology. A collection of stories organized merely by geographic location, such as the way a cell phone chronicles our significant locations in order to learn our habits."
