Visual Library Catalogue: Cloud Atlas

I bought Cloud Atlas recently at the Red Cross shop, for £1.50. My sister, Irene, lent it to me several years ago when I was visiting England from the US. I remember finding the book interesting, but it hasn’t stuck in my head like many books do. Now there’s a film out, a good time to read it again (before seeing the film). But mostly in memory of my sister, who died in 2009. The photo was taken when she won a short story award from Guildford Writers. Irene is bottom right.

  1. Writing is in the genes? Were your parents keen writers?
    After reading the links to the book and the film I will definitely put this one on my to buy list.

    • Irene was the closest thing I had to sister without being genetically related. It’s complicated. Neither my mum and dad were writers, and I don’t have a narrative bone in my body. I can write, but not fiction.
