Dear Mike Wold,
Thank you for your very fair, even-handed and well-written review of “We Lived Here.”
I am so warmed to know that someone has read it. Thanks for the close reading. I have to agree with your gentle criticism; I wasn’t dispassionate. I’m not a journalist but an artist who became an oral historian to do this project — and so followed the lines of inquiry that interested me. That’s an astute observation, and while I knew I had specific interests, I didn’t realize how clear that would be to a discerning reader.
I do value that. I deeply appreciate that you took the time to read it, to write such a thoughtful review, and to get it published.
The book caps what was a very long project so it’s nice to know that it’s out there and in the few hands that have an interest in hyper-local history.
