I came across this by chance trying to find some radio drama on the net. It was a BBC production from a couple of years ago.I ordered the book straight away and have just finished it.
A very powerful and thought provoking read. What I don't understand is how it was forgotten for so long.

I'm not sure what to classify this book as. The book information calls it fiction but according to the Foreword says: "The author said that Address Unknown came from real life and was based on a few actual letters." So it contains a grain of truth.

No matter how you classify it, Address Unknown is a reminder of how powerful words can be. ( )
