Re: “Hell and Back” (GT, 9/29): The book group of which I am part read The Sun Does Shine for our pick last month, and we were all blown away. I had suggested it after hearing a remarkable talk by Lara Love Hardin about her experience as a collaborative writer, and in particular her amazing time with Anthony Ray Hinton to help write his story.
I also had some contact with Ms. Hardin around this, asking if she might be able to drop into our online discussion of the book for a bit. I expressed that I knew she was quite busy with far bigger fish to fry than a hometown book group, and had zero expectations. Although she did not know me at all (and we couldn’t work out the timing), she was beyond kind in trying to make it happen with her ultra-busy, star-powered schedule!
I wish her every success in her future endeavors.
