“Quirky, smart, playful, trippy at times - this is exactly how I imagine Mary-Louise Parker to be, and it's how her book is, too. This is a book full of heart and tenderness, heart-breaking at times, witty at others. It was fascinating to get an insight into who Mary-Louise Parker was before she was MARY-LOUISE PARKER, too - incapable of learning to juggle in what might be my favourite chapter, perennially unpopular at school. Hope for us all, maybe?”Claire, East City Bookshop

The bestselling, wonderfully unconventional, “warmly conspiratorial…seriously good” (The New York Times) literary memoir from the award-winning actress that has received fabulous and wide praise. “There is no one else quite like Mary-Louise Parker…Funny, heartbreaking and profound” (Elle).
An extraordinary literary work, Dear Mr. You renders the singular arc of a woman’s life through letters Mary-Louise Parker composes to the men, real and hypothetical, who have informed the person she is today. Beginning with the grandfather she never knew, the letters range from a missive to the beloved priest from her childhood to remembrances of former lovers to an homage to a firefighter she encountered to a heartfelt communication with the uncle of the infant daughter she adopted. Readers will be amazed by the depth and style of these letters, which reveal the complexity and power to be found in relationships both loving and fraught.
