MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for Letters of Note: 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 * * Sunday Times * *
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 * *
As a guide to letters that deserve a wider readership, Usher's compilation is hard to beat * * Scotland on Sunday * *
Quite literally the most enjoyable volume it is possible to imagine. Every page is a marvel * * Spectator * *
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
It is inspiring, and often sad, funny, and occasionally quite surreal * * GQ * *
A wonderful collection of magical missives . . . It'll have you reaching for pen and paper * * Evening Standard * *
A truly extraordinary reading experience * * Big Issue * *
