Duration: 5 hours 45 minutes


An extraordinary autobiographical work, Dear Mr. You creates the arc of a woman’s life through a series of letters to the men who have had significant impact on her. Beginning with the grandfather she never knew and ending with a current neighbor, the letters are sequenced chronologically and range from a letter to the beloved priest from her childhood to former lovers to a firefighter she encountered to the uncle of the infant daughter she adopted. By turns moving, vulnerable, and loving, but always written with a rare and raw honesty, Mary-Louise Parker's prose is by turns lyrical, touching, hilarious, and erotic, always brimming with wit, intelligence, and a mischievous sense of surprise. Dear Mr. You is a remarkable debut from a multi-talented artist.

    I never knew Nancy Botwin could write poetry! The stories in this book not only moved me, but gave me a better sense who Mary Louise Parker is and the people who've helped shape her.

  • Lisa Gilbert

    I really loved that she narrated her own book so you could really hear her emotions. This is a great way to write an autobiography.

  • Molly Pollard

    I enjoyed this book very much. The author narrates and her voice is very easy to listen to. Nice approach to an autobiography, very creative. Each person is a different chapter of her life. Very good.
