Kirsten  (kmcripn) Sad interview. One of his statements rung so true to me after my father's death in August of 2013 from cancer. He said if someone you love has cancer, it's like they're on another planet. How true.

Interesting Kirsten. This is one of the books for me to choose from on the recommendation swap. Thanks for the link!

Also, so sorry about your father! My father is struggling with very ill heath right now - my heart goes out to you! :(

Jenny (jeoblivion) | 4869 comments Kirsten, I've just read this book and enjoyed it a lot. Thanks for posting this!
I'll ask you to post this again in Literary news: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/... which is where your other NPR author interviews were moved previously.

We love if people post findings like this, but rather than opening a new thread for it every time we are using Literary News as a central place to post news, interesting links, interviews and anything else that can be found in newspapers, magazines, blogs and co. as it helps keeping us from drowning in threads and as a result missing out on gems like this.

Jenny (jeoblivion) | 4869 comments Kirsten, I just posted it for you in the thread I linked before. I've also just listened to the interview and was really moved, it's interesting to look back at the book and it's story now, knowing the motivation behind it.
