    Buk Newbie

    Confluence & Influence - some ties to Buk

    Greetings. My aunt, now 92, had a long affair with Buk in the 70’s. She told him about me, a college student at the time, and he would call me now and again late at night and we would chat. I have just come into possession of all his letters to my aunt, shoe boxes full. A project of this...
