A collection of excerpts from women's diaries over the centuries, including the obvious choices and, more interestingly, the not so obvious. I will confess that I spent little time with Woolf, Ann Frank and Anais Nin, having read more comprehensive accounts of their journals. There are many others represented here and, by and large, the editors have done an exemplary job of choosing excerpts.
