Hawthorn Press author Susan Perrow was in Chennai in February as a visiting co–host of the Chennai Storytelling Festival which focussed on Storytelling and Healing. Sudha Umashanker from The Hindu newspaper spoke with her and her colleagues Magdalene Jeyarathnam and Eric Miller.
When a six-year-old refused to sleep for days on end and was bent on forcing herself to stay active her mother was not only physically exhausted, she was clearly at her wit’s end.
