Reviews

This small collection of letters between Harper Lee and her friend witnesses what an estimable person she was ... Flynt's book is a testament to the dead art of letter-writing and the enriching relationships which in the right hands (literally) could in times gone by, be built on it ... This book does something for which one can be profoundly grateful. One at last sees and hears something of this elusive, wonderfully creative woman. * The Times *
This little book, then, contains multitudes. It exemplifies the wisdom, and the frank, unguarded honesty, that can crystallise with age. It is an insight into the chemistry and alchemy of friendship, in this case late-developing, but beautiful in its lateness. It is an oblique reflection on the tumultuous Southern history that its correspondents lived through. And it has the desirable effect of introducing readers to a major Southern writer. * Economist *
It is a small memoir with a big surprise: a selection of Lee's letters. They show her to be sociable, opinionated, amusing. * Times Literary Supplement *
A revealing look at a beloved, mysterious writer. * Mail Online *
[M]odest and self-abnegating. * Telegraph *
