    Epistolary fiction is a popular genre where the narrative is told via a series of documents. You have almost certainly read one of these books. Letters are the most common basis for epistolary novels but diary entries are also popular. The word epistolary comes from Latin where epistola means a letter.

In Lewis Hyde's introduction, he explores the context in which these letters were written and how the author embraced his isolation as a creative force/5(K).

The young novelist to whom Letters to a Young Novelist is addressed is, I believe, Mario Vargas Llosa himself.
