A Friendship in Letters: Robert Louis Stevenson & J. M. Barrie



Shaw M (ed.) (2020) A Friendship in Letters: Robert Louis Stevenson & J. M. Barrie. Inverness: Sandstone Press. https://sandstonepress.com/books/a-friendship-in-letters

Until a couple of years ago, J. M. Barrie's manuscript letters to Robert Louis Stevenson were presumed lost by Barrie's biographers. Since Michael Shaw discovered them, he has been enchanted by the correspondence, and has now compiled this first ever edition, bringing both writers' letters together. The introduction to this fascinating and witty exchange shows why they developed such an intense bond (despite never meeting) and the deep impact their correspondence had on Barrie's life and work after Stevenson died.
