Book summary

Traces the evolution of women s diaries over the centuries, looking at them in a wonderful new light. It is a fascinating journey through the private lives of unknown & famous women as revealed in the pages of their journals. From the seemingly unimportant but revealing details of a pioneer woman s household account to the breathless prose of an adolescents girl, she has chosen excerpts that give us vivid portraits of lives & times that have often been relegated to the margins of history. Also examines the obstacles that have prevented women from writing, the secret codes diarists have developed, & the wide range of subjects they have covered. [via]
