adj. Conducted or contained entirely in correspondence

The Screwtape Letters is C.S. Lewis’ most famous epistolary novel.

Today, our social life on Facebook may be centered around entirely epistolary friendships, fervently emailing people we’ve never actually met.

Etymology
Greek, epi: over or near, stol: send. People are more familiar with the noun “Epistle”.
