This is an absolutely wonderful collection (125) of correspondence from all sorts of people that will no doubt be a favorite.
I don't know where to begin my review. I guess one could go to the letter Katharine Hepburn wrote to the deceased Spencer Tracy, 18 years after his death, that will absolutely leave you mesmerized, to perhaps the letter written in 1933 from Eudora Welty to the editors of The New Yorker that is funny, to perhaps the angry and disappointed letter written by Kurt Vonnegut to the head of the local school board that did not receive a reply. Ah well, there are more, many more. Ernest Hemingway writing to F. Scott Fitzgerald to a letter from John Steinbeck to his 14 year old son Thomas on love, to Yes, There is a Santa Clause that will leave you reading and rereading this wonderful book. Oh yes, the pages on page 330-331 by Albert Einstein to President Franklin Roosevelt will leave you wondering what happened in 1939 that has meaning today.
Get a copy of this book. It is a winner.
The book has copies of most of the original correspondence and is very well done. I think most readers will find a lot of correspondence that will leave you happy, sad, poignant, and wondering. Oh yes, the note of page 330-331 by
