John is a memoir of my oldest brother John who disappeared from Vancouver in May of 1969, never to be heard from again. I sourced from an archive of family letters dating from 1959 – 2010, which document the years leading up to his disappearance, his medical history, and the subsequent tracking my parents did of his disappearance. He was twenty- three at the time and I was thirteen – Helen Walkley.
