Dr. Odets:

May I interest you to take a look at an unusual book I have written — a kind of novel — about an immigrant Jewish-Iranian family living in Manhattan. The text is in the attachment. The book owes a debt to your father’s play Paradise Lost. In fact, my father (born the same year as your father) was a close friend of your father’s cousin and spent many happy hours at Esther Rossman’s house.
