"Three characteristics of a great diary are: (1) daily entries that report events in the writer's personal life in some detail: (2) comments and opinions on those events; and (3) commentary on public events that touch the writer for some reason. If either those public or private events involve historical personages with a certain amount of celebrity value, so much the better. This diary has it all. A unique and irreplaceable document, it has treasures in every paragraph."
