Sent J. Genius a copy of Imaginary Someone
(a book he also features in!) and he wrote back:
"I received your book in the mail yesterday, and
was able to read some of it before bed. It was
actually quite difficult to read, as the emotions
conveyed by such honest, accurate renderings
of childhood--that golden, good and pure
perception that is irrevocably quashed by
schooling and society--was overwhelming.
I had to take it in little pieces, page by page.
You wrote it so genuinely that it transports
the reader to those days when the little soul
burned so bright. What a rare gift to be able
to remember it so well."
