The Longform Guide to Memory

This guide is sponsored by Dear Thief, the new novel from Samantha Harvey. A letter to an old friend, a song, a jewel, and a continuously surprising triangular love story, Dear Thief is about the need for human connection and the brutal vulnerability that need exposes. And it is about how we remember, or fail to remember, our stories.

The Sunday Telegraph called Dear Thief "an incandescent vision of hope and acceptance." The Guardian said it's "a heady, elegiac combination of eroticism and loss, loathing and rapture."
