Ballantyne wisely opts to make Sonya unexceptional, preventing her from getting the sort of easy escape routes a lesser writer might've provided. It's a delicate balance, deftly ha As protagonist Sonya says at one point, "I had no sense of humor," which works in the book's favor. Devoid of wisecracks, wit, and irony as defense mechanisms, Sonya fumbles to find other ways to deal with the decline of her family, often failing, but always examining her memories through a darkly poetic/lyrical lens

Sheila Ballantyne, an author whose best-known novel, "Imaginary Crimes," was made into a movie, has died at her home in Berkeley at age 70. The cause of her death on May 2 was a rare neurological disease called multisystem atrophy, according to her son, Stefan Spielman of Berkeley. The family did not announce the death until recently. On April 24, Ms. Ballantyne's husband, child psychologist Philip Spielman, 78, died after a long battle with kidney disease. The book was quickly embraced by the women's movement of the '70s. In 1982, she published the novel "Imaginary Crimes," based on life with her unreliable father. The Chronicle called the book "a poignantly enunciated family portrait" in a 1994 interview. That year, a film based on the novel came out, starring Harvey Keitel. The year after that book was published, Ms. Ballantyne won a Guggenheim fellowship.

Sheila Ballantyne, a critically praised novelist whose work ranged over death, deception and family life - more often than not, these were all of a piece - died on May 2 at her home in Berkeley, Calif. She was 70. The cause was multisystem atrophy, a degenerative neurological disease, her daughter, Anya Spielman, said. Ms. Ballantyne’s family did not make the news of her death public until this month. Ballantyne’s output was small, just two novels and a volume of stories. Miss Ballantyne has made a book, at times heartbreaking, at times inspiring, out of an arduous and unusual growing up. ‘Imaginary Crimes’ is a very good book, a piece of honest work showing up the common American dream of the big and easy score - the dream of every bunco artist and con man - for the sad sham that it is.
