LETTERS FROM MAX: A book of friendship, co-authored by Sarah Ruhl and Max Ritvo is
now available for purchase.
“Tender . . . A strange and beautiful volume made up of Ruhl’s correspondence with Ritvo.”?New Yorker
“Moving and erudite . . . devastating and lyrical . . . Ruhl draws a comparison between their correspondence and that between poets Robert Lowell and Elizabeth Bishop, and indeed, with the depth and intelligence displayed, one feels in the presence of literary titans.”?Publishers Weekly
“Immediate comparisons will be made to Rainer Maria Rilke’s Letters to a Young Artist . . . this book is a nuanced look at the evolution of an incredible talent facing mortality and the mentor, never condescending, who recognizes his gift. Their infectious letters shine with a love of words and beauty.”?The Observer
