    I just finished, “ My English Name. “ I was so moved and fascinated that I am writing this with my Kindle still on my lap.

    I hope you appreciate the difficulty of writing to someone who had just astonished you with her writing , but I couldn’t go to bed without telling your how remarkable it was. Thanks.
