"God bless you for being able to write this story even though it has given me more heartache than I care to endure. In the face of your passage about the hotel towels, I suddenly burst into tears. I couldn't stand your putting even more pressure on yourself. Not only did this passage remind me of the text of Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man and Franz Kafka's Metamorphosis in a figurative sense, but it literally resonates for me as I have friends who are also faced with the challenge that you've faced. I am humbled by your candor"
