Dear Ailsa, Sometimes I wonder if the friendship that took of the two-an improbable friendship, I have to admit-may echo in a distant Irish village, somewhere in the nature, the windy hills of the ancient county of Donegal.Or am I by allowing uncontrollable imagination of mine too much game playIt’s the story of an unlikely friendshipWhen Tony Doherty’s priest and Sydneysider Tony Doherty sent, based in Melbourne, writer and artist Ailsa Piper-i. e. how much he had appreciated his latest book, he was met with a quick response from the same inquisitive mind.Soon the e-mails flew back and forth and back again.They exchanged their stories and experiences in sweaty pilgrims and dissected dinner menusThey shared their joy of Mary Oliver’s joy of poetry and struggling with what it means to be loved and mourned.This dynamic of exchanging words, questions and ideas grew in an unexpected but precious friendship.Collected here, it is that correspondence, overflowing with empathy, humor and a bitter curiosity about each other, and the worlds, shoes and stories they inhabit.Described by one reader as “a demonstration of how to have a conversation and a friendship”, The Attachment is an intriguing, entertaining and moving celebration of the family, faith, connection even the right time of day to enjoy rhubarb.Dear Tony, It’s Funny How Our Ears Are Tune In ThingsHow our priorities change depending on who and what we knowHow we come to care about these abstract or distant things through the experience of the other.Beautiful, so to speak, but quite incidentallyAll the other things we can worry about.Everything we may have missed if we hadn’t stopped caring for that person.I’m glad we stopped by each other.To read this book, it is to be present at the flood of a call for tenders of friendship between the two reflexive, compassionate human beings, and like all the best collections of letters, it is also a discursive walk through the great questions.It will allow you to be grateful for what you have, while inviting you to seize the day.
