MEDIA REVIEWS

'It is inspiring, and often sad, funny, and occasionally quite surreal.' - GQ 

'A truly extraordinary reading experience.' - Big Issue

'Witty, tragic, educational, inspirational.' - The List

'Addictive, like dipping into a bag of variously tempting assorted candies, knowing that the next one will always bring surprise and pleasure.' - New Yorker 

'A gloriously presented compilation.' - Financial Times

'The literary equivalent of a box of chocolates - bite-sized and pure addictive pleasure . . . The result is beautifully produced, with photographs and colour facsimiles of much of the correspondence. A gorgeous Christmas present.' - The Sunday Times 

'It is hard to see how Letters Of Note could ever be surpassed.' - Mail on Sunday 

'Funny, tragic, brilliantly incisive, historic, lyrical, romantic and studiedly offensive, this stupendous compendium of letters ancient and modern is my book of the year. You will never tire of it.' - Stephen Fry

'A wonderful collection of magical missives . . . It'll have you reaching for pen and paper.' - Evening Standard
