At the Desk: Janie Chang

Three Souls (HarperCollins Canada) is Janie Chang's debut novel. A young woman's ghost watches her own funeral as the story opens, puzzled as to why she's been denied entry to the afterlife. In order to move on, the woman must remember her life, and make amends for the acts that have tethered her to earth. Part family drama, part fascinating historical fiction (set in 1920s China), Three Souls has cast Janie as a writer to watch.
