Poetizing spontaneously without combusting

Letter I recently received regarding ONE CHILD SOLD

Hi Larry,

I bought your book, One Child Sold.

I read it.

I raged.

I wept.

I chuckled – at the foibles of human nature.

I frequently admired a turn of phrase, and marvelled at the vividness of the immages evoked by your words.

Your descriptions of Terezin chilled me to the bone.

Your thoughts about evil helped me to think more deeply into that murky subject.

I pumped a fist in the air and said, out loud, “Yes!”  Are we not all slaves?  Indeed!

I read it again.

You have helped me to confront some difficult subjects.

Thank you.
