Editorial Reviews

This unique episode of Symphony Space’s Thalia Book Club takes as its theme "books about letters, and about emails, and about communication", and features readings, insights, and discussion from Thomas Mallon, American intellectual and author of many works of fiction as well as the pertinent nonfiction tome Yours Ever: People and Their Letters, and John Freeman, author of the humorous Tyranny of Email: The Four-Thousand Year Journey to Your Inbox.

Put these two lively thinkers together, and what do you get? A radically interesting discourse about the changing nature of communication in our society, the decline of the letter, and the great power - for good or evil - of the Internet, and the electronic age.

Publisher's Summary

Novelist and essayist Mallon talks with Freeman, critic and American editor of Granta, about the great, lost art of letter writing and the current frenzy of electronic messaging. A discussion with the audience ensues.
