i have for many many years wanted to say thank you .
i graduated high school in 1979- college in 1984
i was required to read , rumor of war
in a high school sociology class and was blown away
i have seen you twice on book signing gigs
and one of my most prized possessions
is a copy of ‘means of escape you signed .
to be honest
i have read half of your books
but for the last 15 years , i have forgotten about you
[ i am so sorry ]
i will now begin reading you again .
what prompted this e-mail
was the ken burns documentary
reading kevin powers book , yellow birds
re-reading a killer esquire article you wrote
about william styron in the 1970’s
[ i am obsessed with styron ]
and the fact my 50 year old brother [ a doctor ]
just read ‘rumor of war for the first time
and was blown away by it as i was all those years ago
prompted me to write to you
and say thank you so much
and i very much hope you and your family
are bathed in health – happiness – and serenity
Enjoying your book very much. Am also a wanderer of sorts…………..by car when kids were young, by jogging locally but tracking my distances around and back and forth across the country on a maps and looking up the various sites and towns I passed through, and more recently by bicycle……actual state wide rides with Cycle America, [ Missoula HDQRTS} Have not read that far in book to see if you came across them on your travels. Now ride with buddies on our own rides, last year VT, NH. Did you know there was a Civil War skirmish in St Albans, VT?
You are joining the esteemed ranks of L and C, JS, WLHM, and of course, Jack K, all of whom I have read and enjoyed. Am Kansas native and grad of KU, [Lawrence of course]. Quantrell, John Brown and all the Civil War related history has been one of my interests.
Now live in York PA, We claim to be the First Capital of the USA ha
Maybe share with you some of my experiences of similar nature to those on your journey……………
I read about your book “The Longest Road” in the Parade magazine. It sounded like something my husband, Gary, would like especially when I saw the Air Stream Camper. He has always wanted an Air Stream and to travel the back roads. (He drives a tractor trailer, but mostly somewhat local.) I ordered the book on 7/15 and paid extra to get it in two days for my husbands birthday on 7/20. Your book has been the best gift my husband has ever received. He has enjoyed it soooo much and is constantly reading parts of it to me. Occasionally, it sounds like the two of us. I just wanted to thank you for writing this book. He only has about 3 chapters left to read and really doesn’t want to finish it. I don’t know what he will do when he is done! I guess I need to get him one of your other books. Thanks again!
Thank you for getting in touch, and especially for your comments. It’s so pleasing to hear that your husband enjoyed the book, and you the parts he read to you. I hope, when you read it, that you’ll have the same reaction as he. Meanwhile, it would be deeply appreciated if your husband or you wrote a customer review for Amazon.
Best regards, Philip Caputo.
