The Joy of Letters — 4 Comments

  1. Kitty – You have beautifully captured how letters so intimately portray not only the writer but also the times. I am most recently enjoying researching the genealogy of my side of our family, and how I yearn for more personal writing from which to construct my ancestors’ narratives. I have one family memoir, a newspaper interview, and Christmas letters but – alas – no personal letters, except from the present generation.

  2. I’ve been thinking about the obsolescence of letters a lot recently. Maybe they will have a rebirth–moving from a form of communication to a gift people give each other. Katharine, I enjoyed hearing about this book.
