From a young man in Dublin, Ireland
Tuesday September 04, 2007
Hey there Miss Alice Miller , Tommy Ellis is my name , I have just read 3 of your books in this order (1) BREAKING DOWN WALL OF SILENCE (2) THE DRAMA (3) BANISHED KNOWLEDGE I AM just about to start (4) For your own good . I am 33 yrs of age and I have been in recovery from addiction since feb 14 1994 , i was just 20 when i first entered a little awareness . I have done 10 years of work on myself + i am getting on great . Its starting to really come good for me . I have so so so much i want to say to you but now that i am writing i am a little stumped 🙂 . I am in Dublin , Ireland , + myself and lots of my friends are reading your books . all men in our thirties . We pretty much think your great . I got some cool stories for you in regards to confronting my 70 yr old mom + my 80 yr old dad. I will write you again with these stories of which your books became an integral part . Actual internal separation feels amazing . Please keep writing .
Regards , T. E.
AM: Thank you so much for your letter; it must be very strange to read my books, they don’t fit very well with what you have learned in school or in traditional therapies. I am glad to hear that you can appreciate them anyway and am interested in your stories.
