When priest and Sydneysider Tony Doherty emailed Melbourne-based writer and performer Ailsa Piper to say how much he had enjoyed her latest book, he was met with a swift reply from a similarly enquiring mind. Soon emails were flying back and forth and back again. They exchanged stories of their experiences as sweaty pilgrims and dissected dinner party menus. They shared their delight in Mary Oliver's poetry and wrestled with what it means to love and to grieve. This energetic exchange of words, questions, and ideas grew into an unexpected but treasured friendship. Collected here is that correspondence, brimming with empathy, humor, and a fierce curiosity about each other and the worlds, shoes, and histories that they inhabit. The Attachment is an intriguing, entertaining, and moving celebration of family, faith, connection, and even the correct time of day to enjoy rhubarb.
