9780312567446: Love Letters of Great Men

Remember the wonderfully romantic book of love letters that Carrie reads aloud to Big in the recent blockbuster film, Sex and the City? Fans raced to buy copies of their own, only to find out that the beautiful book didn't actually exist. However, since all of the letters referenced in the film did exist, we decided to publish this gorgeous keepsake ourselves.
Love Letters of Great Men follows hot on the heels of the film and collects together some of history's most romantic letters from the private papers of Beethoven, Mark Twain, Mozart, and Lord Byron. For some of these great men, love is "a delicious poison" (William Congreve); for others, "a nice soft wife on a sofa with good fire, & books & music" (Charles Darwin). Love can scorch like the heat of the sun (Henry VIII), or penetrate the depths of one's heart like a cooling rain (Flaubert). Every shade of love is here, from the exquisite eloquence of Oscar Wilde and the simple devotion of Robert Browning, to the wonderfully modern misery of the Roman Pliny the Younger, losing himself in work to forget how much he misses his beloved wife, Calpurnia.
Taken together, these letters show that perhaps men haven't changed all that much over the last 2,000 years--passion, jealousy, hope and longing still rule their hearts and minds. In an age of e-mail and texted "i luv u"s, this timeless and unique collection reminds us that nothing can compare to the simple joy of sitting down to read a letter from the one you love.

About the Author:

Ursula Doyle lives in London where she was, until recently, the deputy publisher of Picador.

From AudioFile:

Inspired by the fictional book in the film SEX AND THE CITY, this is a collection of private letters from some of the most influential and prolific artists, statesmen, kings, and poets of Western history, from Pliny the Younger to Mozart to the letters sent by soldiers of war who never came home. Anton Lesser narrates with energy and sensitivity to the text, shifting his delivery to match the tone of each letter. In Daniel Webster's letter to his love, Josephine, in which he admonishes her forgotten bonnet for not giving up the secrets it must surely know, Lesser's narration is quick, coy, and engaging. In Oscar Wilde's letter to Lord Alfred Douglas during Wilde's trial for "gross indecency," Lesser is dark, passionate, and deadly serious. A great collection with a great narrator. Don't wait until Valentine's Day for this one! A.A. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
