Review: I Live a Life Like Yours by Jan Grue

Jan Grue has written several books prior to this memoir though it always explores the theme of embodiment. I Live a Life Like Yours might just give the context behind why this is the focus of his work. Having been diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy at the age of three, this is a memoir that focuses on this diagnosis and what it means as far as everyday living goes for Jan. A tale about love as much as it is about grief, suffering and a world that is full of obstacles for those not considered "normal."

Grace Pettis: So many people have come up to me and told me their deeply personal stories

Landon, is a deeply personal, true story-song written as an unabashed apology from Grace Pettis to her best friend for not being there when he came out right after high school. The Indigo Girls were so behind the song that they agreed to sing on it.  Growing-up in a small town in Alabama, Pettis grew up in a homogenous community steeped in a traditional Christian faith. Deconstructing bias with each masterfully poetic lyric, Pettis puts her own youthful, "traditional" values under the microscope, and has released this track. She spoke with The Fountain about the track and plans for the remainder of the year.
