In this extensively researched collection, editor Anna Holmes has amassed an inspirational, historical, and highly entertaining collection of letters from women across the centuries (both known and unknown, fictional and real). From Heloise (of Abelard and Heloise) in the twelfth century, to writer and co-executive producer of Sex in the City Cindy Chupack in the twenty-first; from mad missives and caustic communiques to downhearted dispatches and sweet send-offs, Hell Hath No Fury is the most comprehensive collection on the shelf of letters from the end of the affair. Featuring: the tell off, the other man, the just friends, the unrequited, the marriage refusal, the slow fade, the string-along, the you’ve changed, and reams of other romantic rants, ruminations, and reckonings, included here are correspondences from Agnes Von Kurowsky to Ernest Hemingway, Rebecca West to H. G. Wells, Stella Bowen to Ford Maddox Ford, Nina Eliza Pinchback Toomer, mother of Harlem Renaissance writer and philosopher Jean Toomer, to her estranged husband, Dorothy Thompson to Sinclair Lewis, Candida Royalle, adult film star, to an ex, Jennifer Belle, author of Going Down and High Maintenance to an ex, Kate Christensen, author of In the Drink and Jeremy Thrane to an ex, Lucinda Rosenfeld, author of What She Saw to an ex, Monica Lewinsky to Bill Clinton, and many more.

It’s as old as time: the breakup letter. The kiss-off. The Dear John. The big adios. Simple in its premise, stunningly perfect in its effect. From Anne Boleyn to Sex and the City writer/producer Cindy Chupack, from women both well-known and unknown, imaginary and real, the letters here span the centuries and the emotions—providing a stirring, utterly gratifying glimpse at the power, wit, and fury of a woman’s voice. In a never-before-published letter, Anaïs Nin gives her lover, C. L. Baldwin, a piece of her mind. Charlotte Brontë, in formal fashion, refuses the marriage proposal of Henry Nussey. In a previously unpublished letter, Sylvia Plath writes to her childhood friend and brief lover, Phillip McCurdy, expressing her wish to maintain a platonic relationship. And “Susie Q.” lets “Johnny Smack-O” know that she’s onto his philandering.
The brilliance of the mad missives, caustic communiqués, downhearted dispatches, sweet send-offs, and every other sort of good-bye that fills these pages will surely resonate with anyone who has ever loved, lost, left, languished, or laughed a hearty last laugh.
