Whatever happened to the love letter? Has the written word lost its charm in our digitally obsessed, speed-dating age? In this inspired and unique collection of new fiction, over forty celebrated writers explore the potency and power of a classic, yet neglected, genre: the love letter. Four Letter Word brings us work - published here for the first time - from a dazzling array of contemporary writers, including Ngozi Adichie, Margaret Atwood, Michel Faber, Geoff Dyer, Neil Gaiman, A.L. Kennedy, Audrey Niffenegger, Lionel Shriver and Leonard Cohen.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Ridiculously enjoyable. A true pleasure" * Guardian *
"Funny, romantic, desperate, and sometimes plain dirty, these offerings are a delight to read" * Big Issue *
"They have brought wit and passion together in [this] totally original collection to unleash the romantic in all of us... May the stars shine on them for resurrecting this delicious, dying custom" * Daily Telegraph *
"This is a collection to dip into and savour... It works because so much of the pleasure in reading these letters is in the fact that they are not for our eyes" * Scotland on Sunday *
"From tales of rapture and repression to humorous exchanges between jilted lovers, the collection presents the reader with a kaleidoscope of ideas on how to approach the subject. . . . This is a seductive anthology which manages to appeal to the head as well as the heart" * Time Out *
