The reason I ask is that I have contacted a number of people whether I could include their statements in a book I hope to eventually finish.  Only one person has not gotten back to me. I can certainly work around his statement, but the piece would sound better if I could include him.

Possibly, but when does it lose weight as simply narrative information? 
I think without a name it becomes more shaky. It might be an item of 
interest, but it loses credibility.

My opinion...
