Every letter contains a miniature story, and here are some of the greatest. From Oscar Wilde's unconventional method of using the mail to cycling enthusiast Reginald Bray's quest to post himself, Simon Garfield uncovers a host of stories that illuminate our past and capture the enchantment of this irreplaceable art. There are stories that show how little our letters have changed over the millennia - from Roman birthday party invitations to the greedy demands of Henry VIII. There are stories of boundless love and revealing literary exchanges - from Napoleon's whining pleas to Josephine to Ted Hughes' admissions following the death of Sylvia Plath. There are letters that reveal the history and truth of our lives with a richness and depth that have no equal in a digital age. And as these accounts unfold, so does the tale of a compelling wartime correspondence that shows how the simplest of letters can change the course of a life.
