Shaun Usher's More Letters of Note mines the archives for more gems of the epistolary arts * Guardian * Reading through them is addictive, like dipping into a bag of variously tempting assorted candies, knowing that the next one will always bring surprise and pleasure. Usher has an evident knack for selecting letters that land with the force of a good short story, with personalities and dramatic arcs emerging swiftly, from just a page or two. Many of the writers are famous people, caught in a moment of accessibility and rawness or off-the-cuff virtuosity * New Yorker * A gloriously presented compilation * Financial Times * Open the pages of the anthology and the appeal is immediately obvious * Observer * It is inspiring, and often sad, funny, and occasionally quite surreal * GQ * The literary equivalent of a box of chocolates - bite-sized and pure addictive pleasure ... The result is beautifully produced, with photographs and colour facsimiles of much of the correspondence. A gorgeous Christmas present * Sunday Times * Full of warmth ... Wondrous * Independent * An amazing collection * Monocle Arts Review * Beautiful ... If you don't find at least something that interests you in this book you are not a proper human being. (And unless you find almost all of it gripping I can't imagine having a conversation with you) * Spectator * Praise for Letters of Note: Funny, tragic, brilliantly incisive, historic, lyrical, romantic and studiedly offensive, this stupendous compendium of letters ancient and modern is my book of the year. You will never tire of it' -- STEPHEN FRY Funny, sad, startling letters * Daily Telegraph *
