Not so long ago the world was a bigger place. Communication was a slower affair. Postcards and letters were expected; public telephone boxes occasioned long-distance conversations with far away loved-ones.

Sometimes there is an imperative to clear away the clutter of these former times. The old desk for instance, parked unhelpfully in the hallway near the front door, had been there too long. I decided to sort it. It was heaped with coats, a couple of shoes, a woollen hat and a sliding pile of junk mail. There were five drawers. In them I found a little lead elephant, an empty spectacles case, various lists on scraps of paper, a folded receipt, a faded party invitation, a confetti of hole-punch paper, a pair of suitcase padlocks still in their plastic package, six unflattering passport photographs, seven sleeves of self adhesive labels, an old identity card, a blank diary, some out-of-date magazines, an unpaid electricity bill, a handful of francs, one paper clip, fourteen elastic bands, a plastic snowman, a fat felt-pen, several broken pencils, a tiny light bulb in its box, a biscuit tin full of candles and two picture postcards.

In the middle drawer – the one that always got stuck – was a broken bicycle pump and an oversized envelope, full and smooth, licked shut. I made an irreversible mistake. I decided to open it. Inside was a collection of unread letters on thin, foreign paper. They were all of the same hand, and all written to me.
