Lisa | 1 comments I haven't seen the film yet but plan to. The trailer for it is breathtaking. I love this book - your writing reached in and touched my soul - very beautiful.

In writing Snow Flower, did any female ancestors "speak" to you while creating the characters?

Are there lessons taught to you as a child that seemed old-fashioned at the time but perhaps not so, as an adult?

Thank you Lisa, for your time.

I didn't even know I was going to write a book. But then Lily started speaking in my head so strongly that I pulled out my laptop and wrote the first chapter. (This was when I was on my way out of China.)

I don't know the answer to your lessons question. That's something I'll have to think about for a few days and will probably get the answer at two in the morning. Always wear comfortable shoes? I hated that as a kid, but I sure believe it now.
