It’s 2008, and the guy who just might be responsible for the financial crisis has turned to writing. Now he’s got writer’s block, and he reflects on his choices, his writing, and the great love of his life. Is he naïve, crazy, or just over-medicated? A Person of Letters is a rollicking riff on creativity and idealism, a deliciously icy snowball aimed at writing and publishing in the digital age.
