Tonight, we visit with Linda Gray Sexton. We will be discussing her three memoirs, Searching for Mercy Street, Half in Love and her latest Bespotted.  In this trilogy, Linda shares with us her journeys in self-discovery: a journey to forgive her mother, Pulitzer Prize winning poet, Anne Sexton, for her suicide; a journey to acceptance of the legacy of suicide and Linda's triumph over it; and finally a journey to seeing the joyous aspects of her current life, and childhood, specifically through the lives of her dogs. Linda is a published author of four novels, in addition to these three memoirs, and has been her mother's literary executor since her death in 1974.
