The perfect example of art at it’s most raw and honest, The Art of Wooing: An Email Tale of Modern Courtship by Kaz Brecher is an intense distillation of the twisted eighteen month romantic saga between herself and her poet/kick-boxing instructor. The book is entirely comprised of emails between herself and friends, detailing the dalliance as it unfolded, as well as some pretty personal collages throughout. What could possibly be more enticing than such a raw, thoroughly up close, un-edited view at someone else’s love and loss? As Brecher puts it, ‘it’s a Griffin and Sabine for the Sex in the City crowd’. Perfect.
