Inventing Anna is Vivian’s story as much as it is Anna’s – in some ways, they’re both inventing. For all of Vivian’s good intentions, she’s using Anna’s narrative to redeem herself from a recent loss in her professional life.
As Vivian’s personal involvement in Anna’s narrative grows, their friendship develops in surprising ways. The repeated visits Vivian has with Anna in a New York City jail have helped her overcome some of her own troubles, allowing her to focus on the task at hand.
