Reviews

"Lusciously readable." --Booklist

"[Airmail] is a superior exemplar of what a correspondence can be. . . . Rich in observational detail and charisma." --The New Republic

"[A] delectable book. . . . Whether or not one is grateful for the speed and ease of electronic messaging, this marvelous collection, both entertaining and edifying, provides one opportunity to measure what has been lost." --Star Tribune (Minneapolis)

"Readers will find amusing, even touching, the attempts of each poet to explain linguistic nuances. . . . The love of language, poetry, family and friends, all on display in eloquent handwritten or typed letters redolent of a bygone era." --Kirkus Reviews
