Críticas:

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 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 * * The Sunday Times * * A gloriously presented compilation * * Financial Times * * Open the pages of the anthology and the appeal is immediately obvious * * Observer * * A truly extraordinary reading experience * * Big Issue * * It is hard to see how Letters Of Note could ever be surpassed * * Mail on Sunday * * Quite literally the most enjoyable volume it is possible to imagine. Every page is a marvel * * Spectator * * 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 wonderful collection of magical missives . . . It'll have you reaching for pen and paper * * Evening Standard * * As a guide to letters that deserve a wider readership, Usher's compilation is hard to beat * * Scotland on Sunday * * The volume is so well-produced it could become an heirloom, passed down through generations * * Huffington Post * * Witty, tragic, educational, inspirational * * The List * * It is inspiring, and often sad, funny, and occasionally quite surreal * * GQ * * This wonderful volume features letters for the great and the good, including Mick Jagger, Roald Dahl - and the Queen, with her personal recipe for drop scones! Some are witty, some are wicked and others will move you to tears * * Bella * * A book that's an ideal Christmas gift * * Metro * * This year's Christmas gift? For sure * * Evening Standard * *

Reseña del editor:

Letters of Note is a collection of over one hundred of the world's most entertaining, inspiring and unusual letters, based on the seismically popular website of the same name - an online museum of correspondence visited by over 70 million people. From Virginia Woolf's heart-breaking suicide letter to Queen Elizabeth II's recipe for drop scones sent to President Eisenhower; from the first recorded use of the expression 'OMG' in a letter to Winston Churchill to Gandhi's appeal for calm to Hitler; and from Iggy Pop's beautiful letter of advice to a troubled young fan to Leonardo da Vinci's remarkable job-application letter, Letters of Note is a celebration of the power of written correspondence which captures the humour, sadness and brilliance that make up all of our lives. Including letters from: Zelda Fitzgerald, Iggy Pop, Fidel Castro, Leonardo da Vinci, Bill Hicks, Anais Nin, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Amelia Earhart, Charles Darwin, Roald Dahl, Albert Einstein, Elvis Presley, Dorothy Parker, John F. Kennedy, Groucho Marx, Charles Dickens, Katharine Hepburn, Kurt Vonnegut, Mick Jagger, Steve Martin, Emily Dickinson and many more.
