Though Graywolf press published the hardcover of Ander Monson's book, Letter to a Future Lover, you may know it came out in two very limited editions, too. Both editions are now sold out.




So Letter to a Future Lover is written and designed to be read unbound and looseleaf, and tucked into books, as the reader desires. She is hereby invited to read them in any order she prefers, which is the author's intention, a feature only partly realized in the edition published by Graywolf. The order in which the trade edition has them is arbitrary, since any arrangement is an order.

The Limited Edition features slightly different versions of the essays included in the trade edition, printed in full color (the trade is black and white) on 6x9" cards and collected, unsorted and unbound, hand-assembled in a custom cardboard box, in a sleeve with two bonus essays on it. Both this and the limited editions also include DUE DATE cards and corresponding pockets in the case that you'd like to lend them. It is issued in an edition of 100, and includes 91 essays, featuring all the essays in the trade edition + at least 9 additional essays only available in the limited editions. Each copy is hand-numbered and signed by the author. $60 + $12 shipping in USA (overseas shipping is more: email us for a quote).
