Letter to A Future Lover
Marginalia, Errata, Secrets, Inscriptions, and Other Ephemera Found in LibrariesBook - 2015
Ander Monson is well regarded within the field of Creative Non Fiction. He is both a writer and critic of long form journalism, personal essays, and memoir novellas. Here he turns his astute critical eye for innovations in literary form on to the printed book itself. LETTER TO A FUTURE LOVER collects several dozen brief pieces written by Monson in response to library ephemera. He analyses the meaning behind hastily scrawled-in margins, the aesthetic of date labels and the cultural weight born by publishers pagers.
