Re: Messages - Allan Revich & Melissa McCarthy In Mysterious Correspondence

It's a strange and beautiful correspondence story, this one. Here a tangle of interested parties write cloud-like missives to each other.  Roy writes Bonnie about fruit, a suit and a spare key,  Caroline writes Miranda : "...and Jake is just now getting home, desperate for the remote (it's in my bag). Won't he be surprised?"  and Jules writes Sarah about the mysterious nature of it all : "...It all means something, even if you don't know what."
RE: Messages is a book of brief correspondences between artists Allan Revich and Melissa McCarthy, who may, or may not, be sending mysterious messages to each other. The correspondence is real, but the messages might be a different kind of real.

Fun, strange, and poetic this correspondence novel-poem skirts Internet chat rooms by taking it to a quiet white page and beeping not in 404 Page Not Found blips but in mystery haikus.  And it's free. (as a PDF).
