“On a whim and without the benefit of any previous experience or formal education, I decided to write a book. Needless to say, if I had not met Lori my story would never see the light of day. Her guidance and encouragement have been a Godsend to me. She has helped to stimulate my creativity by offering simple suggestions that send me in a new direction resulting in fresh ideas. Never have I felt that her way is the only way. She is a partner in my work and she values my opinion and my style. Because of her direction I have come to believe that my story is worth being told. Thanks Lori.”

Wow! I was totally blown away by your essay—an intelligent, sharp analysis of Eve Kendall as a femme fatale. I appreciate the background information about the fatale character (complete with examples from film noirs), your application of Kuhn's reading, and your analysis of Saint's character and performance. This is a perfect essay… EXCELLENT JOB!!!!”

This is a very insightful and eloquent essay that conveys your understanding of Italian Neorealism and how DeSica employs both elements of realism AND formalism to tell the story of one man's struggle in post-World War II Italy. Your incorporation of outside sources is excellent… This is a very original essay—and a genuine pleasure to read.”
