    Dear Dr. de Paolo,

    A short note to thank you for your kind words about my book At the Center of All Beauty. A fan of my work (and yours) in rural Kentucky forwarded me links to your blogs. I’ve been an admirer of Singled Out since I read it as part of research for the Harper’s essay that led to the writing of At the Center.

    Thank you for your research and joie de vivre!

      So wonderful to hear from you! Thank you for your kind words. “Singled Out” was a real work of passion, as you could probably tell. So much great stuff in your book — I will be writing more. Here’s my email address if you ever want to get in touch that way: belladepaulo@gmail.com
