This witty reminiscence of growing up gay amid the pop culture of the 1960s and 1970s is filled with dating, dieting, and disco. A fine complement to Aaron Fricke's poignant early-1980s memoir, Reflections of a Rock Lobster (Alyson, 1995. reprint).

Deadly Compassion: The Death of Ann Humphry and the Truth About Euthanasia
Review Date: 2/8/2006


When Ann Humphry, estranged wife of Derek Humphry (executive director of the Hemlock Society and author of the bestselling Final Exit), committed suicide in 1991, her farewell note asked Marker, an articulate and prominent spokesperson for antieuthanasia forces, to tell her story. This book is the result. The two women became friends in 1989, after Ann, who had lost both her husband and her job when she was stricken with breast cancer, called Marker for help. The breakup of the Humphry marriage was a messy one, involving public statements, lawsuits, and fighting within the Hemlock Society. Marker defends her friend loyally and tells Ann's side of the story convincingly. As cofounders of the Hemlock Society, the Humphrys were well-known leaders of the right-to-die crusade, but Ann's private feelings about euthanasia changed after her participation in her own parents' deaths. She came to see mercy killing not as a compassionate solution to suffering but as a ``deadly deception'' that leads only to more suffering. This view is shared by Marker, who uses Ann's story to trace the recent history of euthanasia and to argue forcefully against it. She fears that the right to die can easily become pressure to die, and she warns that giving physicians ``license to kill'' is a grave mistake. The statistics she cites on physician-induced deaths in the Netherlands--often regarded as a model by euthanasia advocates--are disturbing (e.g., that one thousand patients die each year from ``involuntary euthanasia,'' that is, without giving their consent to die). Marker advocates ``always to care, never to kill,'' Both a warm tribute to a lost friend and a cool argument by an experienced opponent of euthanasia--although it leaves many difficult questions unanswered.


Death Sentence : The True Story of Velma Barfield's Life, Crimes, and Punishment
Review Date: 9/6/2010


I really enjoyed this book. I have heard about this,but never knew her name or anything about her. I really like the way it is written and couldn't put it down. Bledsoe, gives us the terrible facts without sensationalizing them.


The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair that Changed America
Review Date: 8/27/2006


I thought this was a great book. There was so much that I learned from it. I learned all about the architecture of Chicago, where I'm from. These are buildings that are still there. The world's fair, serial killings I didn't know about. His writing is so descriptive I can't believe there was so much in such a small book.

Review Date: 2/25/2006


Great book, written from case notes of a 1979 investigation into the dissapearance of a 16 yr. old genius. Great explanation of technique used to locate missing people, and a great story also. In '79 William Dear had to do things the hard way, no cell phones, no computers, no G.P.S., just good ol' fashon' detective work. A really good book that keeps your interest until the very end, a glimpse into the way law enforcement can be led off track and go nowhere, while a private investigator can go places and do things no cop can. I highly recommend reading this book, as well as other books by William Dear.
