Sarah Shun-lien Bynum writes stories that border on the supernatural. Her novel, Madeline is Sleeping, focused on a little girl shifting between the dream world and reality. But her latest book deals very much with the real world: Ms. Hempel Chronicles is seen through the eyes of a teacher who is hopeful for her students, but disillusioned with her own life. Author Sarah Shun-lien Bynum talks to us about the joy of childhood, and what we lose in the shift to adulthood.
