This novel is as true to the letter-writing tradition as you can get. It began as a game between the two authors, each taking on a different persona and writing letters back and forth to each other to amuse themselves. Thankfully they realized that what they had at the end was a book that others might enjoy as well, so they thought to clean it up and publish it. That sense of light-hearted amusement leaps from the pages to the reader. Magic, adventure, romance, intrigue, fashion, letters, sass: this book has it all! If you need a pick-me-up or just want to spend a delightful afternoon in a world of magic and wit, this is a the book for you!
