I've been reading a lot of creative non-fiction essays (cause I enjoy it and that's what I'm working on writing). Just read one by Janet Burroway last night that blew me away called "Embalming Mom" - it was definitely a different tact/style/approach than I think I've ever seen in non-fiction - somewhat surreal. I do not find it online anywhere, but I read it in the "TouchStone Anthology of Contemporary Creative Nonfiction" - http://www.amazon.com/Touchstone-Ant.../dp/1416531742
and it's apparently in here book of the same title. http://www.amazon.com/Embalming-Mom-.../dp/087745907X
Burroway is a well known writing teacher with IMO one of the best fiction writing books out there "Writing Fiction"
