Yours Ever: People and Their Letters

Read this Web-Exclusive Book Review by Bethanne Patrick.

Mallon's running commentary on the letters partially removes that frustration for his readers, but that is not the primary satisfaction of Yours Ever. The great joy in reading this lively volume comes from the everyday glimpses of personal truth in letters such as this one, form novelist Flannery O'Connor to her young colleague Shirley Abbott: "I don't write to bring anybody a message, as you know yourself that that is not the purpose of the novelist; but the message I find in the life I see is a moral message."

Bethanne Patrick is a book reviewer and host of The Book Studio for WETA-PBS.
