Diary of the Century: Tales from America's Greatest Diarist

Regular price $4.50

"It began with a sixteen-year-old's scrawls in a loose-leaf notebook and wound up in the Guinness Book of Records as America's largest diary. But Edward Robb Ellis's monumental journal is much more than a testament to one man's devotion to his diary. Because Ellis enjoyed a long career as a reporter, it is filled with eyewitness accounts of historic events and intimate portraits of famous people. And because Ellis is exceptionally frank and forthright, it is also a richly engaging self-portrait that has readers cheering: "Unfailing humanity and honesty make A Diary of the Century and important and irresistible document . . . akin to Copland's glorious Fanfare for the Common Man."--Thomas Kunkel, Washington Post
