  1. Chills. Riveted. For the entire excerpted book. Thank you. I’ve seen the movie—and had no idea about the real story. Every single person who’s asked me how I’m doing today, I’ve responded “Fine, thank you. When you’re listening to an extraordinary story about evil and one man’s triumph of the soul…how can you be anything but fine. Excellent. Fucking lucky. Have a great day “ (okay, well a variation thereof!). Thank you for this. Thank you. I wish he was still living; I’d make a pilgrimage.

  2. After this, I’ve resolved to do the same: Not complain. Ever. Again. Listened while working, then recommended the book to about 15 people I knew–and some I didn’t know. Including strangers. Cause that’s how congenial people roll on the street…
