Description

In this one-page, typed letter by Jamie Lavender, a high school student living in Lakewood, New Jersey, and dated 20 October 1983, the writer wrestles with the question of the purpose of fiction. S/he believes it is to "free the mind" not "burden" it with thoughts of terrorism as she experienced while reading After the First Death. S/he struggles to reconcile the competing views of his/herself and those of his/her teacher.
