    Incredible book Two of Virginia Woolf s contemporaries, and both thought less of VW than she ever realized No matter These are some fabulous love letters They are so in love, so involved, so so everything to one another I can t believe how passionate all of these letters are 404 pages of the most incredible letters imaginable Mansfield s letters can be whiny and manipulative She is demanding she wishes to be the very center of Murray s world every moment of every day, even though her consumption takes her far and away over the European continent in search of a cure His work requires that he be in London, and her disease requires that she be away from that city So this great love is lived through letters wonderful, all consuming letters, or devastating letters of lost hope and deep sadness in view of her illness and their separation Two divine letter writers I was fascinated by this entire volume, by every letter To get letters as alive as these were But it is truly a lost art now.
