"Another mailbag stuffed with funny, heartbreaking and passionate letters ... engaging, eclectic, geekily and gleefully enthusiastic and laugh-out-loud funny" (The Times)
"Funny, shocking and poignant, More Letters of Note must be one of the most entertaining books of the year" (Financial Times)
"From the genuinely funny: Marge Simpson duelling with First Lady Barbara Bush to the truly heart-breaking: Julius and Ethel Rosenberg's last goodbye to their children before execution. Usher's book is unlike anything else you have read. After all, where else can you find out why Norman Mailer refused money to his father, or how Janis Joplin felt before breaking America? Exactly" (GQ)
"Shaun Usher's More Letters of Note mines the archives for more gems of the epistolary arts" (Guardian)
"Some of the letters will make you laugh, other heartbreaking examples will make you cry" (Independent)
"Reading through them is 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 gloriously presented compilation" (Financial Times)
"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" (Sunday Times)
"Full of warmth . . . Wondrous" (Independent)
Beautiful . . . If you don't find at least something that interests you in this book you are not a proper human being. (And unless you find almost all of it gripping I can't imagine having a conversation with you)" (Spectator)
