    I am about to publish my first novel and it was inspired by C.F. Borgman’s “River Road.” How utterly delightful to learn there is a prize named after him. His work CHANGED my life in college, helped me to come out as gay and to dedicate my life to helping people through my psychotherapy and sex therapy practices. Above all, Borgman made me WANT to write. I wish I could have met him. I will do anything to help bring his works to electronic form. Don’t hesitate to contact me. With so much thanks and hapiness, David
