I worship it. I loved, admired and devoured it; didn't want it to end. What is better than a good novel in letters? A great one. Carlene Bauer has written a book that is dear, brilliant, and unforgettable. A lovely surprise. This remarkable method of storytelling provides snapshots of the events that shape the story. The two correspondents in Carlene Bauer's book, along with their families and friends, come wittily alive in the letters they exchange, and those letters end up accumulating a terrific narrative and emotional force.

Frances and Bernard is one of the best first novels I've read in years.

Instead of heading home, I stood in the parking lot and finished the book right then and there.
