This really made my day. A friend of mine in Australia has a younger brother whose English Literature Class read my book and sent me this note.
"Hey Mark, just wanted to tell you , my brother is in the top classes for English literature at his school, and they used your book "The final arbiter " as book reading and reviewing assessment. He thought your book was great !"
Reading something like this makes me feel good and is what makes writing truly rewarding. I never thought the book would be read in high school down under. Big thanks to Ryan for telling me and to his brother for the kind words. They mean a lot.
