Question

This is about miss lonely hearts

Comic Strip & Letters. West is quoted as saying that he at first thought of Miss Lonelyhearts as "a novel in the form of a comic strip." In what sense does Miss Lonelyhearts retain this form? First, think about how comic strips are organized and drawn. Do you find a similarity in West's style? 

What role do the letters play in the novel? Why are they so important? What would the novel lose if there were no actual letters, only Miss Lonelyhearts' and Shrike's commentary about them?
