Created by writers Carole Hayman and Lou Wakefield, Irene Spencer and Vera Small--aka "the ladies"--are happily widowed and live in a world of church fetes and amateur dramatics. But when Irene meets Vera, tipsy and tangoing, at Irene's daughter Lesley's wedding reception, they embark on a correspondence unlike any other in the history of letter-writing. In their letters they share all the twists and turns of life's rich tapestry in true acerbic and forthright form--swapping family stories and subtle put-downs with ease and aplomb. It is through the ladies' narrow vision that we learn to love their long-suffering families, and through their increasingly hilarious escapades that we learn to love them. Irresistible in its depiction of the foibles of female friendship, "Ladies of Letters" is a sparkling collection of letters full of humor and vitriol in equal measure.
