Portland-based author Arianne Cohen has created an entertaining, behind-the-scenes book version of her successful New York Magazine column. Cohen's semi-voyeuristic chronicles of Americans' private lives covers people from across geographies, ages and walks-of-life. There's something for everyone here. This book is a fun read and is impossible to put down at times ("I'll just read one more diary"). Highly recommended.
