Walking on Water

Walking on Water by Judith KalmanJudith is currently at work on this novel about love, marriage, and mental illness.

Author’s Note:

“Imagination depends on the known and fully felt, mining what’s stored in unreliable recall. It renders the work life-like, if you succeed, but hardly real or as it was, for even your own perspective changes with time. You write as you must, never letting the facts get in the way of the gist of an experience. You fill in what you don’t know by inference and embellishment, play fast and loose with sequencing and time, undeterred by what may be remembered as true. What you end up with, if you fail to call it fiction, is a memoir full of lies.”
