The Last Diaries of Auntie Christina
by SiewJin Christina Jee
Sue Townsend died in 2014. Her death prompted Christina, a Malaysian fiftysomething and aspiring writer, to reread Sue's famed series 'The secret diaries of Adrian Mole'. Reliving her delight in Mole's exploits, she realized that her own encroaching twilight years were as eventful and hilarious as Mole's. She then set off to document daily events pertaining to her and hers and the world at large.
