Let me invade your inbox!

I've decided to share longer, more personal letters with friends and readers over email. These letters will be about writing, books, motherhood, Brazil, coffee, farming, travel, literature, criticism, music, failure (usually my own), my incredibly low tolerance for alcohol these days (I can't drive after consuming half a glass of Kombucha), and whatever else I'm up to.

Frances’s Recent Updates

Frances de Pontes Peebles, The Air You Breathe
