12 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"„Jesteśmy w stanie zobaczyć martwe gwiazdy, mimo że już nie istnieją. To właśnie ich tragiczny koniec pozwala nam je odkryć". Podobnie miłość Eda i Amy wykracza poza prawa czasu i obecności. Ed Phoerum, dojrzały mężczyzna, światowej sławy astrofizyk, ma żonę i dwójkę dzieci. Amy Ryan jest studentką fizyki, która utrzymuje się z pracy kaskaderki. Spotkania kochanków są rzadkie i potajemne, codzienność ich związku to głównie kontakty wirtualne. Ta sieć stopniowo ich przenika, przejmuje nad nimi kontrolę i przenosi ich uczucie poza realną rzeczywistość. Giuseppe Tornatore snuje kunsztowną miłosną intrygę, a przy okazji stawia ważkie pytania, czym jest miłość w epoce wszechobecnego Internetu i czy wirtualna obecność jest w stanie zastąpić prawdziwą relację z żywym człowiekiem. Giuseppe Tornatore (ur. w 1956 r.) - słynny włoski reżyser, scenarzysta i pisarz. W 1990 roku zdobył Oscara za film Cinema Paradiso. Twórca wielu głośnych filmów, takich jak Malena (2000) czy Koneser (2013). Powieść Korespondencja została zekranizowana w 2016 roku w doborowej obsadzie z Olgą Kurylenko i Jeremym Ironsem w rolach głównych. Muzykę do filmowej adaptacji skomponował Ennio Morricone."--
