In his 'celebration of what has gone before, and the value we place on literacy, good thinking and thinking ahead', Simon Garfield explores how we have written to each other over the centuries. Covering correspondents from Cicero and Marcus Aurelius to Ted Hughes and the Queen Mother, the book delves into the stories of famous letter-writers and considers all the things we have lost - 'the post, the envelope, a pen, a slower cerebral whirring' - by replacing letters with email. Off-mint.
