...from a letter by Alan Yoshioka to The Hamilton Spectator, December 15, 2001

“RE: ‘The search for my word,’ By J.S. Porter, The Magazine, Dec. 1

Thanks so much for publishing the excerpt from J.S. Porter’s new book, Spirit Book Word. I told my colleagues on the listserv of the Editors’ Association of Canada that I’d come across this story in your paper when I visited Hamilton that weekend—such a lovely meditation on words that speak truth, writers who have to get the voice just right.

I posted the opening paragraphs, which had been enough to get me hooked. One member of the listserv ordered the book from the publisher and posted the how-to for the rest of us.

And two others wrote me privately with notes of interest and appreciation. Clearly the piece struck a chord!”
