A delightful investigation of the art of letter writing, Yours Ever explores masterpieces dispatched through the ages by messenger, postal service, and BlackBerry. Here are Madame de SAcvignAca€™s devastatingly sharp reports from the French court, F. Scott Fitzgeralda€™s tormented advice to his young daughter, the casually brilliant musings of Flannery Oa€™Connor, the lustful boastings of Lord Byron, and the prison cries of Sacco and Vanzetti, all accompanied by Thomas Mallona€™s own insightful commentary. From battlefield confessions to suicide notes, fan letters to hate mail, Yours Ever is an exuberant reintroduction to a vast and entertaining literaturea€”a book that will help to revive, in the digital age, this glorious lost art.
