Dear Jean Vanier, I am an old school teacher who is a great admirer of you and L'Arche. I finished writing a novel recently. It will be published in May. There is a character in the novel who is a confluence of you and Xavier Le Pichon. The character does not have a huge role, but it is for me a precious one still. The novel is in English. I'd be honored if you'd allow me to send you a copy. {I'd need an address.} I'll understand of course if you need to decline, but I want you to know anyhow. The novel's name is Frequencies of Life. Thank you for being such a deeply caring soul. Sincerely, Robert Minder
