Rating: 4 out of 5

An accidental purchase via my kindle but one I quite enjoyed reading nonetheless. Partly abut the reader and why he’s interested in letter writing, but mostly examples from history of prolific, talented or obscure letter writers.

Whilst reading it I’ve noticed references to letter writing in other areas of my life a lot more keenly - an email from a friend lamenting that she doesn’t have time to write real letters any more, sample letters in amongst the display of artefacts at the William Morris Gallery, a TED talk about letters. It’s interesting how they’re referenced everywhere if you look.
