Hey Val, sorry that it took to so long to leave you a note--you mentioned something about going to Spain and I wasn't sure if you had gotten back from your trip. Anyway, coincidentally I just finished a research paper on both "My Name is Asher Lev" and "The Chosen"--two great works. My thesis was actually based on the opinion that Chaim Potok's works are influenced by his own life experiences. What really captures me the most about his writing is the conflict between religious ideals and the secular world. I could say that "My Name is Asher Lev" did indeed inspire me, mainly becuase of the way in which Potok conveyed Asher's emotions so well--you could practically feel his passion for art leaping out from each page. I loved it so much. Also, I have always thought that his characters have this wisdom, this passion for is absolutely rejuvinating. Unfortunately, I haven't been keeping up with current affairs and I just found out about Mr. Potok's death two years ago, which saddened me very much. The world has lost a great response to your apology, I must say that it is alright and there's really no need to apologize. I believe that the entire thing was a misunderstanding, and that no one is at fault, really...anyway, I'll talk to you later. --Libet

Wait a minute, I just noticed--you like Chaim Potok? I love him! Not many people know who I'm talking about when I give reference to him. What did you think of "My Name is Asher Lev?"

from godmoney :
ur val, i'm vin. didn't realize u were a fan of vonnegut. he is mos def pure genius, but a major drawback is that u can't read the same book of his twice. it's just NOT THE SAME. i love all his stuff, but "slapstick" (lonesome no more, w/e) has a special place in my heart.
from beagle47 :
