My heart, my found sister, Y-Dang Troeung. I wish her love on her journey from this life. Literature brought us together, and her writing, much of which is on the cusp of publication, will sustain me all the days of my life. pic.twitter.com/Bqrd0akTmx— Madeleine Thien (@madeleinethien) November 28, 2022
