PENELOPE BASS

Powell's on Hawthorne
3723 SE Hawthorne Blvd.
 
One might naturally assume that Christopher Robin Milne, son of A.A. Milne and inspiration for the central character of the Winnie-the-Pooh books, had an enchanted childhood. But Milne had a difficult relationship with his parents and often struggled in the shadow of his namesake character. Douglas Lain’s debut novel, Billy Moon, Milne’s family nickname, is set in 1968 and explores the adult Milne’s struggle to find his own self-image.
