More Kind Words From Stephanie Cowell

This is a charming book! It captures somehow the spirit of how very young Mozart was, and how exciting and new were all his experiences. The book centers around a series of fictional letters from Aloysia to Mozart as they knew each other and in the end a poignant one after he died. It makes her a little nicer than we generally think of her (will she ever be forgiven by posterity for running off with Lange?) but the hand-written letters, sloping this way and that on the page, are charming and the colors of the book are marvelous. It’s a really original work of love and a lot of skill.
