What dark gastronomic slip does Annabel Crabb have to confess to an unsuspecting guest? How did Mary Anderson change the life of Frank Woodley - despite the fact the two of them have never met? How did a plate of steak teach Missy Higgins a firm lesson about not being too hard on herself? The act of letter writing allows us to slow down and truly connect, with a person, a subject, an idea. At their hugely popular Women of Letters events, Marieke Hardy and Michaela McGuire encourage and allow our best and brightest to lay bare their sins and secrets, loves and loathings, memories and plans. Collected here for the first time, these dispatches from Australia's favourite people are warm, wonderful and astoundingly honest. Praise for the Women of Letters series- 'Women of Letters offers a joyous bounty of many voices, writing styles, laughs and regrets. Having read this book, I feel as though I know humans and their various conditions much better.' Weekend Australian 'Gives readers an intimate look into the hearts of some of Australia's finest literary, political and theatrical figures.' Daily Telegraph 'Readers of all ages will get a glimpse of themselves in this surprising, thoughtful, funny and inspiring book, which deserves to find a place in everyone's home.' Bookseller + Publisher All royalties for the book will go to Edgar's Mission animal rescue shelter.

    Women of Letters curated by Marieke Hardy and Michaela McGuire was an interesting read. Everyone has a story to tell and it was good to have a look into the lives of people we have all heard about. It makes me feel surprisingly normal. Surprisingly, it also contains some contributions from men. Hamish Blake couldnt resist being his normal, amusing self and Jennifer Byrne was as polished as I expected. An easy book to pick up at odd moments and quite entertaining.
