Buyer beware : this is not the book of the film.
But in our view, it’s better than that.
Because it's the real life story behind the film. Featuring some of the hundreds of letters written each year to 'Juliet, Verona', it explores the history of Shakespeare's original play, the beautiful buildings in Verona with a connection to the story, and most of all and look behind the scenes at the 'Secretaries of Juliet' - the volunteers who reply to every letter written to Shakespeare's heroine.
As the subtitle suggests, this book is a celebration not just of Juliet, but of the magical city of Verona and of love itself.
As a bonus it includes a recipe for 'Baci di Giulieta' - 'Juliet's kisses'. Early editions included notepaper and an envelope to write your very own letter to Juliet, and although later editions no longer do there is nothing to stop you from finding your own stationery and writing - and, of course, you'll receive a reply.
A great gift for the one you love; a must-have book for romantics everywhere; a feel-good buy for anyone who still believes in the power of love.
