Reviews

"I challenge you to stop reading Signed, Sealed, Delivered after the Queen of Bohemia's flame to the Earl of Carlisle which begins 'Thou ugly, filthy, camel's face...' I know I couldn't."--Sylvia Nasar, author of A Beautiful Mind and Grand Pursuit: The Story of Economic Ge
"Does anybody remember the values associated with hand-writing a letter? Does the word "cursive" ring a bell? The author of Tolstoy and the Purple Chair eloquently tracks the history of letter-writing, and along the way reminds us of how a real letter establishes a personal bond between the writer and the recipient."--The Sacramento Bee
"A son's departure for college prompted Sankovitch (Tolstoy and the Purple Chair: My Year of Magical Reading, 2011, etc.) to wonder, 'Why does a letter mean so much?'... Her desire for an actual handwritten letter got the author thinking about the different ways in which correspondence connects us to others, and her agreeable narrative roams through many varieties.... a sweet-natured, well-written affirmation of the time-honored role of letters as a uniquely personal way to communicate."--Kirkus Reviews
"Perfect for devotes of pen and paper, Sankovitch's (Tolstoy and the Purple Chair) new book examines her personal correspondence with family and friends and the letters of strangers, famous and obscure, and shows the reading of letters to be a pleasurable form of discovery and connection... an enjoyable, if sentimental read and will likely inspire both old-fashioned letter reading and letter writing."--Publishers Weekly
