Lauren Lovely review, as always when you put your shoulder to the wheel. We differ on the import of "true" and we differ on the impact of "honest", but I see your point. This morning brought an interesting perspective to this discussion via NPR's piece on "dignity therapy." Check it out:

Joanie Interesting. And it makes sense. People do reinterpret their lives as they come to a close. But I do that too, and I'm not dying (except in the sense that we are all dying every day). I want people to see me in a certain way too, just like the dying body builder. I want people to know that I'm not really this driven workaholic who can't hold a relationship together. I'm really a wife and mother. I find myself wanting people to know that I was married for 20 years, as if it mattered, when in fact I haven't been that person for a decade (and nobody cares anyway). But I'm disturbed by the disjoint of my reality and who I perceive myself to be.
