Epistolary Fiction

Stories told through letters, telegrams and other types of correspondence are a genre unto themselves. Writing in Shelf Awareness, Cheryl Krocker McKeon, a bookseller from San Francisco, shares some of her favorites, including the popular Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society ("Epistles," Feb. 5, 2013).  Here are a few more recommended by McKeon and others who enjoy this unique form of the novel:
A Woman of Independent Means by Elizabeth Forsyth Hailey
Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn
 84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff
