Love You Madly by Daisy Jones and Lucinda Hooley (The Language Laundry).

BOOK: Love You Madly by Daisy Jones and Lucinda Hooley (The Language Laundry) 

The novel, by two authors, is constructed of letters, text messages and fridge notes – telling the story of two sisters coming of age in the 1990s. Authors Lucinda Hooley and Daisy Jones will be at the Franschhoek Literary Festival (13-15 May), discussing “feel-good” novels with Máire Fisher on 13 May at 10:00. 

This delightful epistolary novel begins in the days when people still wrote letters on actual paper. Or sent postcards, or left notes stuck on the fridge.
