Letter Collections - 3/8/2008 10:20:42 PM

With the release of The Edge of Love and a cheap re-release of the Dylan Thomas letter collection I was wondering whether many of you had read any letter collections?

I read the Sylvia Plath letters when I was a teenager and found them enjoyable if a little hard going at times and I'm tempted by the Beatrix Potter collection if I could find it at a reasonable price...

So what do you think? Are you a fan? If so I'd love some recommendations from you.

Do they have to be written by an ''interesting'' figure for you to be able to enjoy them and do you have to have knowledge of that person before you start reading?

I remember owning a Roald Dahl letter collection when I was younger - can't for the life of me remember the name, but it was a great book. Some brilliant insights in it.

The Dylan Thomas collection sounds interesting, where did you get it?


I tried to groan, Help! Help! But the tone that came out was that of polite conversation.

You can get it in either Fopp or HMV for 5 with a Edge of Love cover on it.

I think we were given the Roald Dahl collection to read in school at some point, but then again I could be mixing it up with something else!
