9780099503644: Four Letter Word: New Love Letters

Whatever happened to the love letter? Has the written word lost its charm in our digitally obsessed, speed-dating age? In this inspired and unique collection of new fiction, over forty celebrated writers explore the potency and power of a classic, yet neglected, genre: the love letter. Four Letter Word brings us work - published here for the first time - from a dazzling array of contemporary writers, including Ngozi Adichie, Margaret Atwood, Michel Faber, Geoff Dyer, Neil Gaiman, A.L. Kennedy, Audrey Niffenegger, Lionel Shriver and Leonard Cohen.

Review:

"Ridiculously enjoyable. A true pleasure" Guardian "Funny, romantic, desperate, and sometimes plain dirty, these offerings are a delight to read" Big Issue "They have brought wit and passion together in [this] totally original collection to unleash the romantic in all of us... May the stars shine on them for resurrecting this delicious, dying custom" Daily Telegraph "This is a collection to dip into and savour... It works because so much of the pleasure in reading these letters is in the fact that they are not for our eyes" Scotland on Sunday "From tales of rapture and repression to humorous exchanges between jilted lovers, the collection presents the reader with a kaleidoscope of ideas on how to approach the subject... This is a seductive anthology which manages to appeal to the head as well as the heart" Time Out
