Why Not You?
Happily, I have been answering lots of correspondence about my memoir, Why Not Me.
Published a few weeks ago, I am already delighted by the variety of ways the story has touched people. It has confirmed my love of the power of perspective.
A small sampling of the feedback I have received by text or email so far:
“I loved reading about the importance of your extended family. Sadly, I feel like that might be less true for the younger generations. I was reminded of the importance of my own aunts, uncle and cousins.”
“Boy does it ever have a lot of life/illness similarities to me. Your perfect depth of description helps to really understand your illnesses and related struggles but also adds humour and lightness.”
“Your parent’s story as immigrants struck me. It’s easy to forget how hard it is to leave everything behind and start a new life, in a new country.”
“I really connected with the fact that even with a strong support network, you alone go through the illness.”
“Reading about your therapy was really interesting. You took care of your mental health before it was openly talked about.”
“I didn’t know you were related to film stars, a fun surprise.”
Why not you to reach out about Why Not Me? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
