ENGLISH CORRESPONDENCE

Janet Davey

Sylvie is half-French and half-English. Since the death of her mother, she has written weekly letters to her father in London. When he too dies unexpectedly, she waits for the letter she knows he must have posted before his death. And, as she waits, her carefully ordered and controlled life finally begins to unravel.

Brilliantly observed, delightfully witty and beautifully written, English Correspondence condenses all the major questions of adult life — love, marriage, children and grief — into the time it takes to arrange a funeral and find a missing letter.
