Remember letters? They were good, weren't they? The thrill of receiving that battered envelope with its longed-for contents - all the better for the wait... Handwritten is a celebration of letter-writing in all its guises, a showcase for the masterpieces we would all write if we had the time and inclination - the perfect thankyou letter, a riotous despatch from a far-flung location, that heartfelt declaration of love. As John O'Connell shows, the best letters have much to teach us - Samuel Richardson's 'familiar letters'; Wilfred Owen's outpourings to his mother; the schoolboy scatology of Kingsley Amis and Philip Larkin; Churchill and Clementine's reflections on the 'colour & jostle of the highway' they trod together; the sly observational charms of Jane Austen... In this richly entertaining book, O'Connell puts forward a passionate case for the value of letter-writing in a distracted, technology-obsessed world. A properly crafted letter is something to be cherished, an act of exposure which gives shape and meaning to the chaos of life. In the words of John Donne, 'Sir, more than kisses, letters mingle souls;/For, thus friends absent speak.'

From the author of In Farleigh Field... Molly Murphy is starting to think the cards are stacked against her. She's determined to be a private detective, but hampering her investigations is the fact that she's finding many places in turn-of-the-century New York City where women are not welcome, something that's as frustrating to her fiery Irish pride as it is to her rapidly emptying pocketbook. Then two business opportunities pop up simultaneously. An aristocratic family in Dublin fears their daughter has fled to the New World with her unsavory boyfriend, and they hire Molly to track the two down and send the young woman back home. Before she has time to consider her good luck, she's asked to go undercover as a piece worker in the garment business and investigate a potential case of industrial espionage. Now if she can only solve both cases without the help of Daniel Sullivan, the police captain who claims he loves her but who is engaged to someone else... Full of the rich detail of New York's teeming immigrant community and the colorful historical personalities of the age, For the Love of Mike is the triumphant third installment in Rhys Bowen's Agatha Award-winning series.
