Releasing this month, Graham Roumieu has a 'love letter' included in a collection of fiction titled Four Letter Word published by Chatto and Windus (UK) and edited by Joshua Knelman and Rosalind Porter. The book is a unique collection of new fiction written by 35 celebrated contemporary writers including Margaret Atwood, Miriam Toews, David Bezmozgis, Douglas Coupland, Michel Faber, A.L. Kennedy, Audrey Niffenegger, Lionel Shriver, Jan Morris, Jeanette Winterson, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Joseph Boyden, Panos Karnezis, Jonathan Lethem, M.G. Vassanji and Neil Gaiman.
Each writer explores the distinctive form of the love letter to remind us how enticing words can be and perhaps even to resurrect a dying custom. Graham's letter 'From Bigfoot to Santa' is classic Roumieu and an unexpected treat between last year's Me Write Book and next year's I Not Dead.
The Canadian edition debuts January 8, 2008 from Knopf Canada (Random House) and the US edition will be published by Simon & Schuster.
