  1. Just a quick note to say how compelling and awful — and beautifully written — your piece in the NYT was. I’m so sorry you and your wife went through such a horrible circumstance.

  2. Thank you for your feature essay “The Accusations Were Lies. But Could We Prove It?” published in the NYT yesterday. I was deeply moved by your story and inspired by the clarity and honesty of your writing. So I just ordered your book MINE from Amazon. Love that you are a translator too. I translate Spanish to English and English to Spanish. Do you ever attend ALTA? Would be great to meet you there if you do. Peace.

  3. Hi. I just read / listened to your NYTimes magazine piece which could be part of a syllabus for a Creative Non Fiction semester but instead is a memoir of your recent life. Such a horrible story but I applaud both your honesty in expressing the doubt about Marta and the decision to take a higher path. By not pursuing further legal action you’ve placed “J.”‘s future in the realm of his own self destructive tendencies. I doubt he will be able to live with his guilt.

  4. Just read your article in the NYT. I hope the whole process brings you some sort of peace in the end. I am sorry that you had to go through that journey with your life partner and children. Thanks for sharing your story. You continue to be a terrific writer. God bless you and your family.

  5. I heard your story on today’s episode of the Daily. I was angry that your family did not get real justice and that you did not go to Michigan in the end (I understand the pain of being stuck in a city that feels like the wrong fit). I hope your family has found peace. I’m also planning to order your essay collection; your writing is beautiful. Best wishes.

  6. I just read your beautifully written story. So sorry this happened to you. Just wondering, after his horrible manipulations did “J” get the job in Michigan? I’m hoping NO!
    Regards
