"Dear Tina,
Grandy [Phyllis Farley] gave me a copy of your book yesterday. I was up until 2:00 a.m. reading. . . . I can’t begin to tell you how impressed I am with the magnificent job you did. . . . Grandy is so completely evoked, I feel her on every page. And it is so thorough, nuanced, and so intelligently detailed and fascinating.

I know Grandy meant this work for her family (who will treasure it), but I can’t help but feel that it would be equally fascinating to a larger audience. . . . I am just so thrilled and excited that, first, Grandy had the brilliance to find you and commission you, and that you made this amazing work of art.
