Susann CokalTo read someone else's journal is to share the anxieties and heartbreaks confided to those quiet pages. Even more than memoirs, diaries promise intimacy and comfort, a sense of immediacy and an acknowledgment that others have suffered the same slings and arrows that fill the Moleskines on our own shelves. Sex is inevitably of interest, as are aspiration and achievement…Godwin doesn't disappoint in any of these areas…an absorbing, if sometimes uncomfortable, study of how to construct a creative persona. Godwin eloquently demonstrates that the act of writing is an assertion of hope, although the words themselves are often painful.
—The New York Times
