Thank You

Dr. Miller:

First, a word of thanks for the intellectual and moral courage you have shown throughout your life, and through which, the beacon of light you have been for me by way of your books. I first discovered your work DRAMA OF THE GIFTED CHILD through the wiritings and seminars of John Bradshaw, whose "Inner Child" seminars were a cultural landmark in the States during the early nineties. I have since then read, in particular FOR YOUR OWN GOOD and THOU SHALT NOT BE AWARE; two books that opened the doors of my perception wider than I thought possible. I credit OWN GOOD and SHALT NOT with the dawning of my political perspective, as it was these two books in particular that led me to the writings--and later email friendship--of Noam Chomsky, as well as the radical anthropology of Dr. Chris Knight, author of BLOOD RELATIONS: MENSTRUATION AND THE ORIGIN OF CULTURE.

As a professional musician and performace artist, the depth your work has brought to my craft speaks for itself. As a father (whose son just graduated high school this week in New York), words cannot express their importance.

E.

AM: Thank you for your letter. I am glad to learn that my books helped you to better understand your son.
