Summary (From the publisher):

Other People's Mail is the first anthology of its kind: a collection of stories that are all in letter form. Why letters? Because the letter tale is so distinctive, so inventive, so ingenious that writers have always found it compelling, and they know that readers do as well. Who, after all, is immune to the seduction of reading other people's mail?
