Preface to The Freedman Archives

The Freedman Archives is a collection of (undelivered) letters that I wrote to my imaginary friend, Brian Patrick Brown in the years 2004 and 2005. Brian is in fact a real person; he is the branch librarian of the Cleveland Park Neighborhood library, in Washington, DC.

I draw your specific attention to the letter dated June 28, 2004 [The Genesis of an Obsession: Weaving Memoir from Theory and Experience. click here]. The letter discusses why I believe I came to be obsessed with Brian. My interest in Brian is not sexual (not that there's anything wrong with that). I'm very lonely and I wish I had a friend I could talk to once in a while and maybe hang out with occasionally. There's no chance of my becoming Brian's real friend. I think he thinks I'm a nut job.

Hola¡
Soy la chica del blog "Una chica con un poquito de porfavor".
Me ha hecho gracia saber que alguien me lee desde los E.E.U.U.
Mi intencion no era insultar a los estadounidenses sino criticar esa estupida ley de Pena de Muerte que teneis.
Besos desde España¡

Gary you realy have developed an amazing weblog,

You have developed on your own intellectual power and creativity an amazing weblog totally admitted to literature and psychologies; these writings about the inner world of your mind are reflecting on the emotional experiences and response of the outer world. All of maybe not existing persons you created; they are probably much more interesting than the people you meet in real life. I agree with some of the comments here, these writing are fabulous ;)

I thought my concept was unusual. I've always regarded strangeness as a key characteristic of serious art and your work certainly embodies that. A lot of lonely people will respond to your writing and be consoled, I think by it.

Yes I recall your too much food for thought comment - I think it's correct. Right now I'm rolling through Hamlet, taking a break from my more opinionated bard-based writing to try to share his artistry with new Shakespeareans.

Pleasure knowing you.

Bob Dole once saw Newt Gingrich recieve fellatio from a midget dressed to look like Strom Thurmond.

Bob Dole's been popping little blue pills ever since.

Bob Dole has a telephone pole in Bob Dole's pants.
