A wonderfully unconventional literary debut from the award-winning actress Mary-Louise Parker. An extraordinary literary work, Dear Mr. You renders the singular arc of a woman's life through letters Mary-Louise Parker composes to the men, real and hypothetical, who have informed the person she is today. Beginning with the grandfather she never knew, the letters range from a missive to the beloved priest from her childhood to remembrances of former lovers to an homage to a firefighter she encountered to a heartfelt communication with the uncle of the infant daughter she adopted. Listeners will be amazed by the depth and style of these letters, which reveal the complexity and power to be found in relationships both loving and fraught.

Professional reviews

"Mary-Louise Parker narrates her own collection of essays in epistolary form. It's a memoir of letters written to often unnamed men--boyfriends, family members--who were significant in and influenced her life. Her gently expressive performance matches her often dry wit and gives her confessions an air of authenticity and intimacy. More crafted than the typical celebrity memoir, Parker's book moves back and forth in time, highlighting moments both funny and serious, as when she contrasts silly college sexual escapades with a humbling lesson in taking constructive criticism from a professor who didn't like her. Parker's blend of mischief, tenacity, intelligence, and sensitivity shines through her performance. Her many fans will enjoy. A.F. 2017 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
