Posties - five stories

I have been browsing the BBC Radio 4 Extra schedules and came across 5 stories by Julia Darling called Posties. The omnibus edition of all 5 stories can still be listened to for almost a month at I am currently listening to it now.  First story was quite good - a long lost letter finally delivered.

"I would far rather receive a letter than a casually written email."

"There is something decent about a letter: its firmness; its privacy; the sound it makes when it falls from the letterbox to the mat; the assertiveness of a stamp; the postmark......."

Update - rather good collection of postal stories. Well worth a listen if you have time.
