Other Lives presents a new genre: an illustrated short story for adults. In it, a child leads her mother on a journey into a magical and terrifying past. Touching and sensitive, Other Lives sustains dreams and fears while the collage images encourage enchantment and the remembrance of childhood moments.
While writing, Ann sees scenes playing out in her mind’s eye. Combining pictures with the narrative was her way to share some of her images while words flowed. This is the first in a series of storybooks that contain the thrill of illustrations we loved in books as kids with narratives slated for adults.
We hope you enjoy the experience of Other Lives.
