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
