Fact and fiction. Robin Romm has written a book of short stories and now a memoir arising from one central event: her mother’s gradual death by cancer. We explore the differences between fiction and truth, and, in particular, the artist’s commitment to her one truth. She doesn’t want another subject; she’s not ready yet to move on.
