I really enjoyed your piece on Asher Yarmush, the 8-year-old boy who wrote the book “Alex and Henry in China” (“West Orange’s Asher Yarmush: Published Author at 8 Years Old,” November 11, 2021). He sounds like a very impressive kid and I personally loved the book. However, I was surprised to learn that I am his younger brother. According to our birth certificates, I am, in fact, 14 months, two weeks and three days older than he is. Please issue a correction.

Thank you so much,

Ezra Yarmush, age 10
West Orange
