Min Green is writing Ed Slaterton a letter, which accompanies a box. Inside the box are mementos of their relationship, a movie ticket from their first date, an old cookbook they bought together, a comb from a motel room they shared. Item by item, each illustrated and accounted for, this letter tells the story of how they got together and, ultimately, why they broke up. Daniel Handler’s (aka Lemony Snicket) pitch-perfect text and Maira Kalman’s evocative, rich artwork creates a magic that transforms a truly universal story and some benign objects — a folded-up note, bottle caps, a toy truck — into something much more: an unforgettable, funny, heart-wrenching, and ultimately hopeful love story.
