Description
Joseph McElroy brings to life a startling story of loss in 'The Letter Left To Me.' Written by a father to his son almost three years before the father's death, the letter in question is discovered a few days after the funeral. Powerful and moving when the boy first opens the envelope, his father's sober woprds warn him against life's daily distractions. 'The Letter Left To Me' is alive with the creative force of a young man struggling to make sense of himself and the people around him. In a style deceptively simple and direct, McElroy has again extended his range. The result is an American classic.
