Ava Dellaira presents her poignant and exquisite debut novel, Love Letters to the Dead ($17.99). Laurel's English assignment is to write a letter to a dead person. She chooses Kurt Cobain, someone her sister May loved before she too died young. Once Laurel begins, she can't stop, and soon she has an entire notebook full of letters to dead people. She writes to them about her daily life and her struggles to mourn for May, whom she cannot forgive and who took so much of Laurel's own identity with her when she died. As Laurel begins to see her sister for the incredible and deeply flawed person she was, she finally discovers her own path. 

Ava Dellaira is a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, where she was a Truman Capote Fellow. She grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and received her undergraduate degree from the University of Chicago. Love Letters to the Dead is her debut novel. She currently lives in Santa Monica, where she is at work on her second book.
