While Ingrid I. Holm-Garibay sits in the North Las Vegas Detention Center awaiting political asylum in the late nineties, she meets Frank, who is being detained before extradition. They begin communicating through detail and extremely personal letters, discussing the subjects of sexuality, personal relationships, politics, family life, and even spirituality. As Frank's past is methodically dissected, one can deconstruct his letters and gain incredibly profound perspective into the making of a modern day terrorist. This deeply insightful collection of letters is a necessary read for every American who wants to understand terrorism at its deepest roots.

Excerpt
If we want freedom, let's work for justice.
Ingrid I. Holm-Garibay.


Professional Reviews

Robert U. Barone M.S.Psych
To read "Letters from Frank," by Ingrid I. Holm-Garibay is to experience a compelling, highly introspective non-fiction masterpiece of unusual literature; a yearning tale of a search for redemption and acceptance which becomes obvious as the "letters" unravel the lives of Frank Alexander and the author.
The book is a time, often raw accounting of the lives of two brilliant souls who, although incarcerated in a federal prison, learn in detail about each other's life by writing letters back and forth, holding nothing back as they build their unusual relationship in words.
A rare and unusual format, the letters tell each story in such a unique style that the reader experiences a gamut of emotions as the letters divulge the cruelty, loss, abandonment, torture, and humiliations that Frank and the author had to endure during the time in their lives that had created this extraordinary relationship.
Ms. Holm-Garibay has skillfully shared letters that reveal a complexity of startling secrets and staggering surprises, each one more unexpected and breathtaking than the last; a style that creates a powerful story that will stay with the reader long after the last page has been turned.


Sigrid Brunele, author of Woman with Red Hair and Flight from Chador
Found "guilty because she asked for political asylum, the author was thrown into the "hole" which is the basement of a Nevada prison where the most hardcore criminal MEN (!) were kept. There she endure verbal abuse by the wardens and inmates.
Only one man in the cell next to hers showed compassion and slipped her a note introducing himself as Frank. Thus started a friendship, and communication lasting for many months during which the author and Frank opened their souls to each other revealing their most intimate and sometimes shocking happenings of their lives.
I am looking forward to reading the author's next book in which she promises to write about her life in her native Mexico, her travels, until she settled in Las Vegas.
