Skimming through this discussion reminded me of a book published by a dear old friend, which book I have been aware of for several years, but have not yet acquired.
First, I say "published by," because I am not yet certain of the extent of her editorial contribution to the whole project.
Second, I say "a dear old friend" advisedly, because she is very dear to me, and she is of somewhat advanced years - 89 come this November.
I am not saying more here, because the nature of the book might merit a separate thread. It is based on a WWII soldier's journal, and I don't know whether it contains many, or any, actual letters from/to him, although the jacket suggests it might. When I have it in hand and have at least skimmed the content, I will decide whether to add it here or start a different discussion.
