The Book of love: writers and their love letters
Through Ms. Davidson's deft touch, The Book of Love becomes a treasure trove of literary discovery. She prefaces each letter with biographical comments that read like novelettes. From the tragic lovers Heloise and Abelard to love that became literature, such as Ernest Hemingway's affair with Agnes von Kurowsky, to Samuel Clemens's heart-breaking expression of love and grief for his deceased child...all have a place in this marvelous anthology. Though originally addressed.
