'This book promises enchantment as soon as you pick it up.' Claire Rayner 'A stunning accomplishment. To say so much in so few words is breathtaking. If Alphabet doesn't become the next Tuesdays with Morrie, there's something wrong with the world. Though, it's nothing like Tuesdays - because it's so much more. Give it to the one you love; to someone who has lost, or is losing, someone; and to anyone who needs to hope, who needs to cry, or who needs to really dream. It's that powerful.' Publishers Weekly 'An elegant, spare and beautifully written tale. The surprise of this little book is not that it is poignant but that it is delightful: graceful, stylish, humorous, and intelligent - each page shimmers with life at its gentle, everyday best.' Washington Post 'A sad and sweet debut, with prose as taut as a spider's web - a tear-stained goodbye note and a heartfelt love letter.' L A Times
