Love Letters

Hmm, interesting:

When the character Carrie Bradshaw read extracts from Love Letters of Great Men in the hit movie, booksellers were inundated with requests for a copy.

But there was no such book, until the British firm Macmillan spotted the gap in the market and decided to issue a new publication with the same title.

It contains intimate communiques from historical figures including Pliny, Henry VIII, Mozart, Napoleon, Prince Rainier III and Oscar Wilde.

It\’s not just Macmillan that had that idea of course. Several people have.

Including, erm, me.

  1. Dare I ask how many copies you have sold?

    Tim adds: One, to me. But then it hasn’t worked through into the Amazon catalogue yet. Another few weeks for that.

  2. I like the Tony Blair one.

    “Dear Tony,
    I love you lots. You are wonderful. Yours passionately,
    Tony.”

  3. I think I am going to order a copy. Will let you know what I think once I’ve read it (if you’d care to know).

    Tim adds: yes please.

  4. Reminds me of the 80’s BT adds that spawned a rash of JR Hartley “Fly Fishing” books.

  5. I tried to order it today but had problems with the Lulu website. It would not load correctly (but I am thick when it comes to anything to do with computers so might have done something wrong). Will try again though.
