Penguin and Terribly Tiny Tales has brought out a soothing collection what we rarely receive these days. Letters, which was the part of our culture, the quintessential mode of communication was replaced by novel and irreplaceable modes of communication over the years. Terribly Tiny Tales, which created a revolution in making people write and create space for oneself, for their feelings combated and finding peace in solitude through reading and writing with minimal words, in this world which is at its fastest pace. If writing letters gives you time for self introspection, reading them lets you stand in another’s shoe and see things from their perspective. As the note in With Love says,
Letters change people.
They turn forty-year-old men into helpless fathers.
Scared mothers into fierce fighters.
Long-lost pets into possessive exes.
And old lovers into best friends.
They make you spell help.
Give someone a second first chance.
Make you leave behind a home.
And find another in someone.
Sometimes, they’re warnings.
And sometimes, a story left untold.
Letters change people, they say.
Let’s hope these change you too.
With Love is a curated collection of letters that offers realizations and the need to write more. It reveals a piece of your soul to yourself which is the best therapy one can offer onself.
