It hardly seems fair that Bernice McFadden has The Dead to help write her books:
Yes, I believe the dead talk to me, or through me — whichever claim makes you less uncomfortable.
I see more than I hear. For me the experience of communicating with the dead is more like watching a movie. Technicolor images, dialogue, voiceover narration. I have to admit, it’s quite impressive.
But more interesting than your run-of-the-mill The Writing Life column. Anyone read her?
Also noted: Deborah Tannen on her favorite books on "women’s issues."
