it was amazing
Read in September, 2010

Pure pleasure. I don't think I've ever enjoyed a writer's letters so much. What is it about these in particular? They are intensely affectionate, gossipy without being cruel, passionate and idealistic about the calling of writing yet simultaneously earthbound and vulnerable. Salter's letters resonate with the same voice that is found in his fiction and memoir. So if there's not enough Salter out there for you (and there never is), you can drink another drought in this book.
