Letter to Sister -- 1992

I wrote the following letter to my sister in about the year 1992. The analogy is based on an observation made by the psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich in his book Character Analysis. "In psychopathology, much is said about the affinity between the genius and the criminal."

Dear Stell,
