A Note to Clifford Irving and a Response
Quoting Kurt Weller:
Dear Mr. Irving,
My name is Kurt Weller and I have been fascinated by your ongoing adventures since seeing the Orson Welles film. I've read your biography of Elmyr and the book Hoax.
I self publish an electronic journal, a sort of avant garde one man
think-tank which is at times humorous, sometimes dramatic, always sincere.
I was hoping I could do a short piece for the journal concerning you and
your works. If you would be willing to engage in an email interview I would be thrilled.
If that is a possiblity and if you have the time for such things please let me know.
Mr. Irving wrote [Bold and Italics provided by Plaza of the Mind]:
You caught me at a bad time.
I'm off for the jungles of Mexico in three days.
No time for interviews. Good luck.
The following is a dramatic enactment of this email correspondence created exclusively for Plaza of the Mind. Enjoy!
Dateline 2:14 PM
What People Are Saying About the Plaza of the Mind
...[Plaza of the Mind] impressed me in its magnificent weirdness...this sorta je ne sais quoi that you find in interesting art... ...I mean that purely as a compliment!
Plaza of the Mind is a clinamen away from the holeopathic replay by the Android Meme of the old perceptual agon of electrically-programmed youth confronting the Gutenbergian Establishment. Irresistible Force meets Immovable Object.
