The book is kind of a cross between a journal and a conceptual art project. It is a journal in that it is a chronicle of each day’s events. The ‘conceptual art’ part (I’m really not trying to be pretentious) is that the entries are usually no more than a couple of sentences long, most offering very little detail; the reader is thus free to interpret each entry and fill in the blanks however he or she chooses.
It is most definitely an unconventional book. It started out as a Facebook post on a frustrating Monday; after following it up the next day with a note to Tuesday, I just kept going. The notes range from observations about the day to existential queries, with various stops in between. As I alluded above, they are purposely vague, as you might expect from love notes.
‘Dear Monday…’ is available in paperback and e-book formats. Details in the sidebar.
