Editorial Reviews

Guardian Book of the Year
Until a biography of this genius comes along, we have these letters, so ironic, idiosyncratic, and beautiful.
Sunday Times
Self-deprecating, wry . . . the novelist's comic brio is wonderfully on show.
Financial Times
Among the most illuminating, moving collections of letters that I have ever read. The writing glows with love and wit [and] intellectual passion.
Times Literary Supplement
Characteristically short, exquisitely constructed, and saying something extremely important, but something subtle and under-celebrated about the human condition as well! The letters are exciting for what they contribute towards the understanding of Fitzgerald's imagination.
Sunday Express
The pleasure of other people's mail is the trivia and Fitzgerald doesn't disappoint in this department. This book is crammed with domestic detail and reflections on food and drink, taxes and laws, seasons and landscapes.
