Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
Erich Fromm's theory of love and knowledge. I did my master's degree on this, but now, 45 years later, I can speak out of my own experience of love and learning. I also met Erich Fromm and his third wife in Lugano Switzerland after he invited me to meet him there while I was a student in Paris, France.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
Erich Fromm, "The Art of Loving" written while with his third wife during his stay of 23 years in Mexico.
"Escape from Freedom", 1941, summarizes Fromm's work in Germany prior to moving to the United States and Mexico. Major book about nazism too.
