Assassin’s Cloak: An Anthology of the World’s Greatest Diarists
Irene Taylor (ed); Alan Taylor (ed). This anthology of selections from famous diaries takes its title from a saying by William Soutar: “A diary is an assassin’s cloak which we wear when we stab a comrade in the back with a pen.” The extracts in this volume are perceptively chosen, full of insight, wit, wisdom & surprises. The diarists represented range from Queen Victoria to Andy Warhol, from Byron to Noel Coward, from Wesley to Goebbels. They range across the erotic, the hilarious, the banal, the moving, the condescending, & reveal surprising dimensions of people you thought you knew. The selections are arranged by date so you can read them on the same day of the year as they were written, to guarantee for yourself a whole 12 months’ delight.
