a certain type of novel
Family reunions are like novels written from multiple POVs, each narrator unreliable and sympathetic.
A quote from a new book I am reading: Natalie Goldberg's Old Friend From Far Away, about writing and remembering:
Let your mind first believe you are dedicated, that you sincerely want the truth, are willing to take what comes through. Keep moving the pen. Keep practicing.
Till the next time, when I will return with more observations about how family reunions relate to writing, and quotes from Goldberg.
