Letter to D is the ultimate love letter, written by a man to the woman he loves when he discovers she is dying.
Of the millions of words Andre Gorz wrote as a journalist and one of the 20th century’s leading philosophers, perhaps none will be remembered as long as this beautiful and heartfelt open letter to his beloved Dorine.
A bestseller in France, Letter to D is a love story like no other, and all the more poignant because it is true.
Comments:Letter to D is a touching look at a couple’s life together, spanning half a century. The love Andre feels for his beloved wife Dorine comes through, loud and clear, in every word he has written. Even people who don’t usually enjoy romance novels (and I count myself amongst this number) cannot help but be captivated by the depth of feeling contained in this open letter from a man to his dying wife. This novel is all the more poignant for the events which followed. Letter to D is a definite must-read.
