'Letters, we have witnessed firsthand, stir some unusually beautiful things in people,' write Women of Letters curators Marieke Hardy and Michaela McGuire. In From the Heart, the full power of letter-writing is on display. Rock star Amanda Palmer thanks a song for reminding her of the importance of music, and the importance of love. Torn between wanting to encourage and wanting to warn, Senator Penny Wong tells of the 'amazing highs and terrible lows' of choosing a career in Australian politics. Beloved chef and author Stephanie Alexander writes of the shining moment when she received a letter from her hero Elizabeth David. And thirty years since they got married - and fifteen years since they broke up - Derryn Hinch writes with love and celebration for his dearest friend, Jacki Weaver. Uplifting, passionate and compelling, From the Heart is a wonderful new collection from your favourite Australians of note. All royalties for this book will go to Edgar's Mission animal rescue shelter.
