Trata sobre la naturaleza de la revolución y de la renovación, la rebelión y la repromulgación, tanto en lo privado y como en lo público. Es también una meditación sobre la novela misma. (es)

The book is subtitled "An old time epistolary novel by seven fictitious drolls & dreamers each of which imagines himself factual." The structure is such that when the first character of each of the letters in the book are placed on a calendar according to their dates, and the individual months are turned sideways, they spell out the subtitle. In addition, the marked dates spell out the word "LETTERS." (en)
