“I’m a big fan of The Letters Page. Texts and emails are fine but there’s nothing like a handwritten letter.” —Roddy Doyle
“In a landscape of ever-increasing homogeneity, The Letters Page is a joyful oddity—an eccentric delight.”
“This is such a beautiful thing—a love letter to letters.”—Simon Prosser, Hamish Hamilton
From me, with love: the lost art of letter writing
“A letter always arrives from the past… You wait for a letter to arrive. You wait for a reply. In the time it takes for the letter to reach its destination, anything can happen: minds be changed, lives lost, loves discovered.” —Jon McGregor
