Dear Mr. You
Dear Mr. You | Mary -Louise Parker
A wonderfully unconventional literary debut from the award-winning actress Mary-Louise Parker.An extraordinary literary work, Dear Mr. You renders the singular arc of a womans life through letters Mary-Louise Parker composes to the men, real and hypothetical, who have informed the person she is today. Beginning with the grandfather she never knew, the letters range from a missive to the beloved priest from her childhood to remembrances of former lovers to an homage to a firefighter she encountered to a heartfelt communication with the uncle of the infant daughter she adopted. Readers will be amazed by the depth and style of these letters, which reveal the complexity and power to be found in relationships both loving and fraught.

If not for Litsy I wouldn‘t have known about this book. I appreciated how Parker tells her life story in short chapters, detailing the men that have made an impact on her life. Her writing was a surprise and a delight.

Leftcoastzen I didn‘t know about this , sounds interesting. 1y

I wanted to LOVE this clever memoir, beautifully written by actress Mary Louise Parker but unfortunately the epistolary style left me feeling detached to the content and some letters felt unnecessary or inconsequential compared to others. A quirky & quick read but one that unfortunately will not be amongst my favorites. I know @KarenUK and @Megabooks enjoyed this book, so if you trust their opinions ( which you should) I say give this book a go!

Take note Juliana Margulies, it is possible to write a non-boring celebrity memoir without spilling the tea.

Parker writes letters to the important men in her life. Family, like her father and grandfather; her neighbor; her emergency contact; her childhood priest; and my favorite, one to a loin cloth wearing man named Blue from her pre-fame days. A very creative epistolary memoir!

Cinfhen Sounds sweet / I‘ll have to look for it 2y

Dear Mr. You | Mary-Louise Parker

Mary-Louise Parker is a writer. Yes, she's also an actor. But this memoir, told in a series of essays addressed to men in her life, men who are identified most often by station or function or position ("Dear Former Boyfriend," "Dear Mentor," and so on) rather than by name, is simply gorgeous. It's whimsical and serious and heartbreaking. ⬇️

UnabridgedPod When Parker has a confrontation with a taxi driver, fully committing to her rage at his driving at the wrong direction, and then breaks down because she's pregnant and alone and scared, I FELT every moment of her anger and her vulnerability and her sadness. And her empathy for this man who had come into contact with her at a bad time. (I should say here that I listened, via @scribd, and that Parker reads her book herself. ⬇️ 3y
UnabridgedPod I can't recommend her narration more--actors make great readers of their own memoirs, and her voice is so strong in the writing already. Just wow.) Through every moment of this book, Parker makes clear her independence, her love for her children, her love for her parents, her hopes and her heartbreaks. I can't recommend Dear Mr. You more. ⬇️ 3y
UnabridgedPod What books by non-writers (or, I should say, by people who you know first as something other than a writer) have you enjoyed? Has anyone else read this one? 3y
KarenUK Loved this book! She‘s a great writer.... I also really enjoyed this one by an actor (edited) 3y

I liked the idea of this book. She really took the epistolary style to a different measure and it was very interesting. But, I wasn‘t a fan of how abstract it was. It was almost hard to follow and it didn‘t have a flow. Overall, the writing was good and unique.

I cheated and got the audio book but really enjoyed that it was read by the author. While some of it seemed a little too out there for me to grasp, the majority was super enjoyable. Her style is so dry, it had me laughing out loud. The letters to her father hit hard, in a beautiful way. And the letter to her young daughter‘s future boyfriend was perfect!

The tagged book was such a unique memoir- her life told through letters to men in her life.... a Grandfather she never met, ex boyfriends, her daughter‘s future partner, even a taxi driver she once encountered...
The writing is great, capturing moments in her life with real honesty and often gratitude, without any snark or meanness, which I loved... 💌

Lovely writing -smart, poetic, funny and emotional. I loved her ability to recognize the moments that matter - insignificant conversations, acts of kindness, fleeting encounters that meant so much. I aspire to be mindful enough to remember those moments in my own life with such clarity.
Positive and full of gratitude, the lack of meanness was so refreshing in a celebrity memoir.
This book of letters to men in her life will really stay with me.💕

This was equal parts compelling and frustrating. Some passages were great, very profound with a lot of worldly wisdom. In other passages, she came across as a bit flaky, and the stories were very disjointed. Overall, for me at least, this still is worth reading. The premise has inspired me to use a similar format for some journal exercises. I think it will be very therapeutic. 3.5⭐️

I really like the concept of this book so far, writing letters to all of the people in your life who have made an impact in some way or another (even if you haven't met them). Might be a good journal exercise. ❤️

EchoLogical I tried reading this but got annoyed because Mary Louise Parker gave off serious Manic Pixie Dream Girl vibes and I couldn't even deal. It seems as though she's lived an interesting life but I had to bail. 5y

This was equal parts beautiful tribute, caustic burn, and emotional explosion. This #audiobook made me sob ugly tears in my car at 7 a.m. This audiobook made me want to never take a cab in New York. This audiobook made me want to call everyone who has ever been my best friend and ask them about how their parents are doing. This audiobook made me want to eat raw oysters and speak to someone whose language I don't understand and hug firefighters.

I absolutely adored this whip-smart collection of letters written by MLP to the men in her life from her father to her daughter's future boyfriend and all sorts of men in between. Although she doesn't dish and identify any of the celebrity recipients, I'm 99% sure both Michael Chabon and Bruce Springsteen,two of my faves, got a missive. MLP reads the audiobook which is a real treat. Just a beautiful book. #epistolary #readjanuary @RealLifeReading

For today's pick, I'm going with something that feels holiday-like to me. This is a series of letters that MLP writes to various men in her life, from her father to a man she never meets, just sees across the room. Thoughtful and well-written. A great read.

Damn, Mary-Louise Parker can WRITE. In this unique debut, she writes a series of letters to the men who have shaped her life—from her grandfather and her uncle to an oyster picker and a goat, the letters are deeply human, clever, and poetic in nature. It's the kind of book that everyone can connect with in one way or another, and it leaves you feeling sort of hopeful and good about humanity.

Finished my last #beachread on my final evening of vacation while waiting on the sun to set. I loved this book. I didn't want to love it, and discovering that Parker is such a lovely writer is a thing I wasn't prepared for at all. The premise was very off-putting, but the essays themselves are really beautiful. I also wasn't prepared for the crazy-intense emotional reactions I felt. Thank goodness for my sunglasses hiding my tears!

This is a book of letters to various men in her life from her father to a guy she admired across the room. Memoir-ish, but not quite a memoir. Her writing is lovely. Not plot driven, this is a nice laid back read.

I know MLP best from her West Wing days. As a celebrity memoir addict, I can say this is one of the most unique. Some of the letters didn't interest me much. But most were captivating and fascinating in how she framed her life in relation to the addressee. I recommend it. Especially the audio.
