Gitlin book of the month — Written In History, by Simon Sebag Montefiore

Acclaimed historian Montefiore has written a book of letters exchanged through the millennia. In this internet age, we will not be reading many like these, which cast light on history and relationships. In this gem, his categories range from love, family, courage, war to disaster. Each letter is introduced by way of an illuminating biography. Writers include Sarah Bernhardt, Leonard Cohen, Kafka and Balfour.
