Dear Mr. You

Mary-Louise Parker’s memoir Dear Mr. You is a uniquely written book that tells about her life through letters.  The letters are all written to the men who have impacted her life or helped create the person that she has become. Some of the letters are to real people that she knows, but others are to strangers she has passed on the street or even hypothetical men from her mind.  Parker’s writing is simple, yet elegant and wholly enlightening as to who she is.  The letters create such an intimate look of Parker that you can’t help but feel connected to her.  This writing style is engaging and entertaining to read, creating an excellent book for her fans as well as non-fiction readers.
