    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.

    Survivors of Suicide Reach Out

    According to the American Association of Suicidology, more than 32,000 people complete suicide annually which affects at least ten other individuals (family, friends, co-workers, etc.)¿frightening statistics at best in an age where help is supposedly just a phone call away. Through interviews with suicide survivors, Karen Mueller Bryson, Ph.D., a National Certified Counselor brings the tragic life stories of more than 50 contributors who openly discuss their most private thoughts and feelings in_Those They Left Behind_. Bryson¿s interviews focused on: In his/her words (here the contributor provides background information regarding their relationship with the person who completed suicide) The suicide, The bereavement, process, Have you ever considered taking your own life, Dreams and unusual occurrences, Significance of the suicide, Helpful coping methods, and Advice or words of wisdom. For those seeking additional resources or guidance, _Those They Left Behind_ does not offer these insights and readers are left to look elsewhere. Perhaps the best place to start is with the American Association of Suicidology which serves as a national clearinghouse for information on suicide. Other websites that may prove helpful are the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, and Survivors of Suicide. Aptly titled, _Those They Left Behind_ will offer support to suicide survivors and provide a platform for people to share their stories while building reader awareness and understanding.
