Women!

[Letter, 1952]

Phyllis has the strange illusion that she is getting in a rut, even though I have let her walk around the block every Tuesday afternoon for the past two years; I can’t understand her complex. One of these days she is just as liable as not to ask for a root beer or something like that if I don’t get her in hand pretty soon.

About Hugh Nibley

Hugh Nibley, 1910-2005, was simultaneously the LDS Church's greatest intellectual defender from attack from the outside and Mormon culture's strongest critic from the inside. This blog is composed mainly from Nibley's unpublished writings, letters, interviews and conversations, with occasional posts from associates who had personal interactions with him.

    Hilarious. I love his sense of humor. I also love his empathy. In the 60s, my mother was struggling being married to a dedicated anti-Mormon. Brother Nibley said he could give her a few minutes discussion on Book of Mormon archaeology and spent an hour and a half with her. After that, for year, he would send her new information on archaeological evidence. My mom used to share it with me and it was very exciting since we weren’t allowed to go to the LDS Church..
