Klugarsh Mind Control

Hi Mr. Pinkwater,

My dad and I are rereading Alan Mendelsohn to bring us some happiness during the pandemic. I just wanted to ask you, how did you come up with the details of how mind control would work?

Also, did you ever have a friend that inspired the character of Alan?

I love how you make us ‘see’ the story, not just hear it. I hope you and your family are safe and well.

I knew Kevin Klugarsch, inventor of Klugarsch Mind Control, and as a matter of fact I purchased all rights to the method. I am planning to create a Klugarsch Kit, with printed certificate for when you have finished learning mind control and are a qualified mind control expert, CDs, the patented mind-control meter, and an instructional comic  book. Look for it in your local drugstore.

I did have a friend who inspired the character of Alan Mendelsohn. Let me see, what was his name? I have it! It was Alan something. Something, something, something...um...Mendelsohn!

Thanks for the compliment. If I am a good writer it is because I was a good reader. What is a good reader? Well, you for example.

I know Rhinebeck well. It is a nice town.
