Hearty congratulations, Yannis, for the reason that your poems of this collection have appeared in Poetry Salzburg Review & Contemporary Poetry Volume 3.

I am surprised by the fact that how one Greeting Card has inspired Sam to write this novel that runs over 500 pages! He has appreciated Birute Putrius for the card. This is something beyond imagination. The book looks like reading memoirs of his childhood, and growing up and where he talks about his father who is an American soldier and his mother, a Nun.
