Whatever happened to the love letter? Has the written word lost its charm in our digitally obsessed, speed-dating age?

In this inspired and unique collection of new fiction, Joshua Knelman and Rosalind Porter have asked over forty celebrated writers to explore the potency and power of a classic, yet neglected, genre: the love letter. Four Letter Word brings us work - published here for the first time - from a dazzling array of contemporary writers, including Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Margaret Atwood, Michel Faber, Geoff Dyer, Neil Gaiman, A.L. Kennedy, Audrey Niffenegger and Lionel Shriver, to name just a few.

These innovative pieces remind us of how enticing words can be and allow us a glimpse of what love looks like in the twenty-first century. Each 'letter' is radically different from the others, each is a testimony to the creative powers of our leading writers today, and each is guaranteed to seduce.
