My Soul Twin

In this fraught tale of how the sins of the parents haunt and punish their offspring, the tension and sadness are almost too much to bear. Billed as a modern-day Wuthering Heights.

Recommended for purchase in all public libraries.

Don’t Applaud. Either Laugh or Don’t. (At the Comedy Cellar)

Though it focuses on a single New York comedy club, Hankinson’s work will also appeal to pop culture enthusiasts and those interested in the importance of freedom of expression in the arts.
