When someone takes your past away, who do you become?
'I can never tell anybody the real truth. But I can write it and say this story you're about to read is fiction. I can give it a beginning, middle and end. A plot. A character named Evie. A sister name Anna. Call it fiction because fiction's what it is. Evie and Anna aren't real people. So you can't go somewhere and look this up and say "Now I know who this story's about". Because if you did, it would kill my father.'
