    "When non-fiction is fiction" I found reading the various stories in Dr. Mueller Bryson's first non-fiction book "Those They Left Behind" compellingly sad. As a suicide survivor and having read many, many books on suicide, perhaps this book was healing for those who are telling the story but, I found the book as a whole not particularly healing for one, who has experienced the loss of someone. One particular story in her book "Keening in Bangor" was especially offensive to me. I had known the two young girls the author of the story wrote about. The author of the short story, Carolyn Gage, a Lesbian Activist, author, and playwright, DID NOT know the two girls she wrote about. Ms. Gage took a tragic event and contrived a story so sensational that it should be considered libelous. I have to question Mueller Bryson's accuracy of any of her stories in this book but more importantly, I would be questioning the credibility of any of Carolyn Gages work.

    "Re: When non-fiction is fiction" I find it sad that someone who posts a critical review of a book does not have the courage to sign his or her own name. I believe in every person's right to free speech and stating his or her opinion but I think that right should only extend to individuals willing to take ownership of those opinions.
