Praise

Praise for Ten Letters:

“A luminous book. . . . Saslow has found his way around the cynicism and superficiality of Washington politics to show the profound real-life connections between the White House and the people.”
—David Maraniss
 
“Saslow has a feel for the tender spots in these people’s stories. . . . The plainspokenness, decency and human dignity they display leave a lasting impression.”
—Washington Post 

“Saslow is a master at evoking the authors’ stories through vivid dialogue, vignettes of daily life, and powerful language. . . . [He] does not romanticize these individuals; the people Saslow introduces his readers to are those they run into on the street every day. . . . Ten Letters gently reminds us of those defining elements that remain as true as ever in Americans’ relationship to their president.”
Harvard Political Review

“In this testament to the power of the written word, the country’s most vexing challenges, from immigration to education, healthcare to housing, are seen through the eyes of both persons directly affected by them and one person uniquely positioned to do something about them.”
Booklist

“[The stories] offer an intimate glimpse into the lives of people who are hopeful, and sometimes desperate, to be heard.”
Kirkus Reviews
  
“Exceptionally relevant and poignant . . . an in-depth look at the misfortunes, needs, opinions, and, yes, anger over the current state of the country that inspired ten people to put pen to paper. . . .  Inspiring and important.”
—FrogenYozurt.com Online Magazine
