Cathleen Falsani, author of The Dude Abides and religion columnist, writes about being let go from the Sun-Times. This piece is what would have been her last there except that the editor would not allow any such farewell note. Jeffrey Overstreet suggested that she write it up anyway and send it to bloggers she knows who could in turn post it. I am doing my part toward that end. I’d recommend it anyway. Also, she discusses Crazy Heart and redemptive stories.
