After finishing The Divorce Papers, a friend noted that she too liked epistolaries – motivating me to find more. Now on my to-read list:
- The Documents in the Case – (Dorothy Sayers crime novel)
- Herzog (Saul Bellow)
- The Pull of the Moon (Elizabeth Berg)
- The Letters (Luanne Rice and Joe Monninger)
- The Love Letters of Abelard and Heloise
Do you have a favorite epistolary to recommend?
Another epistolary, also by Elizabeth Forsythe Hailey and one of my all time favorite books, is A Woman of Independent Means. Loved it!
yes, I have read it – and really liked it too
Rosemary, it’s 6 AM and I woke up with the name of the book I was trying to remember in my head. So interesting how the brain works! Anyway, it’s Joanna.’s Husband and David’s Wife by Elizabeth Forsythe Hailey. Did you ever read it? It was published in 1986, so I don’t know how it would stand up over time, but I remember really liking it when I read it.
Downloaded the kindle sample of Divorce Papers and bought the book. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
have not heard of it but will look for it – thanks!
