Goodenough Gismo

  • Gismo39
    This is the classic children's book, Goodenough Gismo, by Richmond I. Kelsey, published in 1948. Nearly unavailable in libraries and the collector's market, it is posted here with love as an "orphan work" so that it may be seen and appreciated -- and perhaps even republished, as it deserves to be. After you read this book, it won't surprise you to learn that Richmond Irwin Kelsey (1905-1987) was an accomplished artist, or that as Dick Kelsey, he was one of the great Disney art directors, breaking your heart with "Pinocchio," "Dumbo," and "Bambi."

hello hello

I was so happy to read this. I too found "People of the Lie" to be very significant, have given it to others, and indeed was myself given the book at a time when I was working with a person perfectly described by Peck's book.


Glad to have been the link for this article. Peck has always been willing to step out a little bit and speak what he has seen, whether or not he expects agreement. The next steps in studying this will be interesting. Traditionally, "exorcism" has not been a trade-school skill...



I love Mr/Dr. Peck, I was married to a very Narcissistic "Man of the Lie", and was so mentally and emotionally frailing around for some explanation, and being so unusually self sacrificing on his behalf, for his salvation from himself. It hurt me to look at him and unbelievably KNOW he was uncapable of love, had never experienced and never would experience love, not even for his 3 beautiful boys.... thank you "Scotty" as was written in People of the Lie", my soul was definately the battleground of Matt's evil, and I loved him so much (even on a non-wife level) but yet as of yet, I was unable to love him enough. But you helped me to understand like I never could have had a not lived it.
