Seven notable epistolary novels

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog Joel Cunningham tagged seven notable epistolary novels, including:
Where’d You Go, Bernadette, by Maria Semple

To answer the titular question this lively, hilarious novel poses, you’ll have to piece together a string of student report cards, business invoices, press releases, essays, magazine articles, emails, blog posts, newsletters, and even a TED talk. Despite the narrative trickery, it’s one of the most heartwarming, laugh-out-loud funny books about mothers and daughters and the impossibility of parenting that you’ll ever read.
Read about the other books on the list.

Where’d You Go, Bernadette is among Chrissie Gruebel's five top books for readers inspired by Nora Ephron.
