Other people's diaries...

I picked up a copy of this book at a used book store recently. It's laid out day by day for the whole year With selected diary entries from that day written by famous people, historical figures and more modern personalities. Interesting bits. I'd like to read the full diaries of some of these people.

I'm very interested in this. Thank you for sharing, otherwise I might not have heard about it.

There are some cheap copies on abe.com if you can get free shipping in the US.

Three that interest me are the diaries of Isherwook, James Lees-Milne, and Hannah Cullwick. I enjoyed Kafka's and have read some of Gide's, but I'd like to read more of people who weren't so famous, or at least unknown to me. Too many to choose from. :)

I read this about two years ago, and was loving Andy Warhol and Eleanor Coppola's pieces very much. Enjoy it!
