Some 30 letters appear in each volume, in a gift worthy paperback format with foil embellished covers and deckle edged pages. "Reading through them is addictive, like dipping into a bag of various tempting assorted candies, knowing that the next one will always bring surprise and pleasure."—The New Yorker
