"It's another great function of stories and of literature to remind us of our humanness, of our sense of compassion, and that deep essential quality that we must find our way back to, and that is to being relational beings.” Author Jamie Figueroa talks with Zibby about how her latest novel’s opening scene came to her "like a remembered dream." She discusses loss, magical realism, and the importance of cultivating a relationship with your writing.
