My son cried and cried as I tried to rush home. I wanted to run through the stop lights as I cursed myself for not leaving earlier. He was only four months.When I arrived home, my son looked at me teary-eyed as if I were the worst parent in the world – and I felt like it. Then I read Empty Chair by Stacey Danson. When I read A Child Called It, I couldn’t believe that the narrator was only the third worst case of abuse in the area. What could be worse, I wondered. Reading Empty Chairs gave me the answer. When I read I Know Why the Cagebird Sings, I thought there couldn’t be anything worse than being sexually abused by a relative. Empty Chairs taught me things could be much worse. Even Sister Rose’s pamphlets about the saving teenage prostitutes off the streets for the charity Covenant House seemed like child’s play in comparison to Empty Chairs. It’s hard to imagine any parent being so evil as Stacey Danson’s, aka Sassy. The book shone a light into a dark corner. It’d be difficult to read such horrors if it wasn’t for Sassy. She makes reading this book a pleasure. While terrible things are happening all around her, she somehow finds a way to make it through. Certain scenes, like school and with Animal, I laughed. Other times I cringed. It’s hard to imagine another book that packs a stronger emotional punch. I couldn’t help rooting for Sassy. This, more than anything, is a story of an eleven year old girl surviving on the streets. I found it very moving. If I didn’t, I would have questioned my own humanity. I wanted to ask the author a few questions and was glad she let me. Check out the interview: http://stpeterkilledgod.blogspot.com/...

The saga continues, as delightful as ever, even when the subject is a study on suffering. Gaiman proves how out-of-date and out-of-touch is the Religious Right. While they were posturing and telling us what to do in our private lives, the entire balance of power changed in the war between Heaven and Hell. Reviewers talk about Gaiman creating new or modern myth, but I think he continues the traditions of the old ones, not so much reinterpreting traditional stories, but channeling the current events of gods who are alive today.
