To Agnes, there are few things as sacred as a sealed envelope. An amusing and touching portrait of a life spent writing letters, From Afar is dedicated to the real-life Agnes.
‘Mum said you could tell everything you needed to know about a person from their pencil case. I always wondered if she did that when she was choosing to marry my Dad, but now I know that isn’t the kind of question I should be asking. Proudly proclaiming to my friends that I was so sure my Dad had a wonderful pencil case probably wasn’t the best thing for a much younger me to do. ‘
