  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. Just read your feature in NYT “The Accusations were lies….” and felt compelled to find out more about you guys and write a few words. May the almighty save us all from people like J who know the system well enough to abuse it and prevent their victims from using it. It is people like J who make the system difficult for real complainants and provide an excuse to real perpetrators to complain of witch-hunting.

  6. 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.

  7. 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
