A stack of books that were either never finished, never published, or were destroyed.
Pratchett’s unfinished works were run over by a steamroller as per his wishes, Waugh set fire to his manuscript, Sappho’s poetry was burned by order of the Pope and Lady Wortley Montagu’s daughter threw her journals in the fire for being too incendiary, ironically. The others were either started or planned out but never completed.

We are speaking of love. A leaf, a handful of seed—begin with these, learn a little what it is to love. First a leaf, a fall of rain, then someone to receive what a leaf has taught you, what a fall of rain has ripened. No easy process, understand; it could take a lifetime, it has mine, and still I’ve never mastered it—I only know how true it is; that love is a chain of love, as nature is a chain of life.
Truman Capote, from The Grass Harp (Vintage International, 1979)

Take me back to the time when we could touch and hold things, wrap our fingers all around it, compare it, feel it. A feeling far deeper than a dull quick sweeping glance off of a rectangular shaped screen.
Handwritten Letters have that ineffable gesture that no text messages can match.
