'Gorz's writing here is painstaking in its honesty, utterly withoutsentimentality but full of genuine passion. 'Like the very bestbooks, ' writes the translator in her afterword, 'Letter to Dwill break your heart.''
London Review of Books

'That one 75-page missive could eclipse the seminal work of anintellectual who impressed even the great Jean-Paul Sartre sayssomething about the power and resonance of this passionate andsoul-searching homage to his English wife Dorine.'
Wigan Evening Post

'Gorz wants to extract the 'poison' from his previous depictionof Dorine in his first published work. To set the record straight, the fragile, clingy girl of The Traitor is replaced here byan intelligent, vivacious woman on whom he is totally dependent:'You opened up the richness of life for me and I loved life throughyou.' The book's conclusion - knowing that a year later Gorz and Dorine committed suicide together - is guaranteed to bring a lumpto the throat.'
Times Literary Supplement

'A love letter of such exquisite poignancy that it has now cometo define the man.'
Lancashire Evening Post

'Gorz's admiration for his wife's strength of purpose andcharacter, her resolve throughout her long illness, her style, herbeauty and her commitment to him are likely to make even the moststern-hearted of readers lachrymose.'
Good Web Guide

'One of the most poignant missives you'll ever read. Ameditation on a love supreme.'
Sunday Magazine

'This spare, elegant, best-selling memoir by a celebrated Frenchjournalist and writer has been impeccably translated into Englishby Sydney-born Julie Rose.'
Sydney Morning Herald

'Neither sentimental nor polemic, this book is a celebration oflove that lasts, of passion and commitment and loyalty thatovercome illness and disappointment. It is not surprising thisintimate love-letter has struck a greater chord in Gorz's adoptedcountry than all of his other fine intellectual works ofphilosophy.'
Courier Mail

'Little gem of a love story.'
Sunday Telegraph

'The heartbreaking postscript caps off a captivating snapshot ofa grand love.'

Notes for the Reader
Übersetzung von Julie Rose
'You're 82 years old. You've shrunk six centimetres, you only weigh45 kilos yet you're still beautiful, graceful and desirable'- so begins André Gorz's 'open love letter' to the womanhe has lived with for 58 years and who lies dying next to him.

As one of France's leading post-war philosophers, AndréGorz wrote many influential books, but nothing he wrote will beread as widely or remembered as long as this simple, passionate, beautiful letter to his dying wife.

In a bittersweet postscript a year after Letter to D waspublished, a note pinned to the door for the cleaning lady markedthe final chapter in an extraordinary love story. André Gorzand his terminally ill wife, Dorine, were found lying peacefullyside by side, having taken their lives together. They simply couldnot live without one another.

An international bestseller, Letter to D is the ultimatelove story - and all the more poignant because it's true.
