Back to the Mail

Almost two years ago, I dedicated a week on the blog to writers’ correspondence. That was to coincide with my review of Thomas Mallon’s book about letters through the centuries. You can find those blog posts, which featured letters from Flannery O’Connor, John Cheever, and Kafka, among others, here. By the end of this week, I’m hoping to have a piece up on the Backlist about the correspondence of Shelby Foote and Walker Percy. So, I thought I would share more letters. The first will immediately follow this post.
