Susan's Brother
Wednesday, November 02, 2011  4:00:00 AM

by James Marinero

I've been commissioned to take on a non-fiction project. 'Susan's Brother' is a true story about an abused dyslexic boy who was put in an adult mental ward at the age of nine years old.

A friend approached me and said she knew someone with an interesting story to tell...'Susan's Brother' is about an abused dyslexic boy who was put in an adult mental ward at the age of nine years old. It's a true story and has involved extensive interviews with the subject (now 63 years old). So, I've had to learn to interview subjects on very delicate, very personal and emotional matters. One doesn't often see sixty-year-old men in tears as they recount very unpleasant childhood memories (unless one is a counsellor, and I'm not). It's strange looking back, but my time in countless professional interviews with subjects who were defensive about being replaced by computer systems have stood me in good stead for this project. 

Despite the subject matter, Susan's Brother is an uplifting, positive story.
