A Review of Older Sister. Not Necessarily Related. A Memoir, by Jenny Heijun Wills (McClelland & Stewart, 2019)

Postcards in a Closet by Lori Wolf-Heffner
I can't believe I only saw this now :( Yes: This book is in the genre of creative non-fiction. So it's based on Katharina's life and the artefacts she left behind, and I've added my own interpretation to fill in the gaps and suggest what she may have See Full Answer

Sabina Khan
Thanks for your question! I wrote the first draft of TLLORA in 16 days. I was writing 10-11 hours a day and I don't think I can/want to do it that way with another book but who knows. Obviously there have been many rounds of intense revisions since t See Sabina’s answer.
