Editorial Reviews


A substantial treasury to dip into for years and years, to inspire new thoughts and enlighten all dullness ... it amply fills a gap in the classics of English-language anthologies. (Muriel Spark TLS)

Gossipy, funny, perceptive and vicious extract. Every dip-in is a sheer delight. (Kenneth Baker Observer)

The result is a succession of surprises and delights, as all those solitary voices strike up a conversation across the years. (The Times)

Brilliant ... It's the perfect bedtime book. (Evening Standard)

From the Back Cover

'A wonderfully entertaining anthology of diaries'
Mail on Sunday

'The perfect bedtime book'
Evening Standard

'Here are the great, the good, the bad, the hubristic and the humble'
The Times

'A diary is an assassin's cloak which we wear when we stab a comrade in the back with a pen.' So wrote William Soutar in 1934. But a diary is also a place for recording everyday thoughts and special occasions, private fears and hopeful dreams. As a result, this wonderful collection of entries from the world's greatest diarists is as inspiring as it is enlightening.
