Dear Ms. Sinkler:

Thank you for your courtesy in responding so quickly to my letter regarding the confusion surrounding inquiries about a review of my tenth novel, The Miraculous Day of Amalia Gómez. I appreciate your telephone call.

I asked you at the time--and my memory is that you graciously agreed--whether you or someone on your staff would be good enough to let me know, directly or through my agent or my publisher and editor, whether a review of my novel will appear in your pages. That way I'll be able, finally, to put this matter to rest and in perspective.

Obviously, after all this, I'm hoping there will be a positive resolution.

Again, thank you for your appreciated courtesy.

Sincerely,

John Rechy
