Memoirs from the 5th Floor: Fighting for My Life, by Blatant Guyon

Blatant (a pseudonym) was in a near-fatal car accident and lost most of his large and small intestines. He is now dependent on parenteral nutrition (PN). “By the grace of God,” he says, “I am still here. I’m here to share my testimony and be a blessing to others.” In this book, the second volume in a “set of five different hospital journals,” Blatant does share his testimony, as well as his regrets from the past and his hopes for the future. After the accident, he writes, “I am like a baby learning to crawl. I had a near death experience and these are my accounts, my thoughts.” The book—as you might expect from a journal—moves from past to present to future as the author’s thoughts flow. Sometimes it’s a little confusing, sometimes it’s a little upsetting, but there is real heart and feeling in the book, and it’s a compelling read. The book is available at www.barnesandnoble.com, www.amazon.com, or www.publishamerica.com ($19.95).
