Review: Which Brings Me To You



Which Brings Me To You by Steve Almond and Julianna Baggott

As you all know by now, I love epistolary novels, so I was excited to read this novel, written by a pair of authors in that very style, especially since one of them was Steve Almond, author of the hilarious Candyfreak.

John and Jane nearly have a sexy tryst in the coatroom of a wedding, before putting on the breaks and making a pact - to write each other confessions of their past loves gone wrong. The letters that make up the bulk of the novel are painful, truthful, interesting, funny and endearing. I came to fall for John myself, and rooted for the two characters to hurry up and find each other.

This is an engaging, interesting and fast read that goes beyond a typical chick lit epistolary read.
