Other People's Love Letters: 150 Letters You Were Never Meant to Seeby Bill Shapiro
Synopses & Reviews
Fevered notes scribbled on napkins after first dates. Titillating text messages. It's-not-you-it's-me relationship-enders. In Other Peoples Love Letters, Bill Shapiro has searched Americas attics, closets, and cigar boxes and found actual letters-unflinchingly honest missives full of lust, provocation, guilt, and vulnerability-written only for a lovers eyes. Modern love, of course, is not all bliss, and in these pages youll find the full range of a relationship, with its whispered promises as well as its heartache. But what at first appears to be a deliciously voyeuristic peek into other peoples most passionate moments, will ultimately reawaken your own desires and tenderness…because when you read these letters, youll find the heart youre looking into is actually your own.
• "i think UR great. wanna have wine & Tequila again sometime?"
• "I can't believe you're real, and I think about you constantly in some way or the other all day. I haven't given the finger to anyone driving since I met you."
• "With you I learned how to fight cleaner, how to talk things out better, and how to make a strong loving family out of nothing. These are priceless gifts that I will carry with me the rest of my life. One more thing you did for me: you left, and I had to get through it."
• "P.S. I look forward to your letters too much to call. Also, where do you stand on chains?"
Bill Shapiro is the former editor of LIFE magazine. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.
