Letter Subscription, 2003, subscription of 24 hand-written letters

When I was living in France I put an ad in the French newspaper Liberation advertising a subscription of handwritten letters. I sold the subscription to a total stranger named Eric Perez. Every week for six months I sent him another fictional chapter about his life in the form of a handwritten letter. He became the hero of a novel written for him and about him.
