Project

During my residency I will work on my new novel. It is a fiction story about how serious illness takes its toll on a person and their family both from an emotional and medical point of view. It’s a journey through life touching on different topics, such as experiencing problems at the workplace when one’s child is sick or looking for one’s own identity. In addition, I continue my ongoing endeavours to restore historical memory through one of characters in the novel.
